Africa – Champions League: CAF rejects Wydad Casablanca
Moroccan club Wydad Casablanca has had its last appeal on the dispute in the African Champions League final in May rejected.
The latest failure came after a meeting of the appeal committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), which said that Tunisian Esperance had won the title in May. Wydad has not yet confirmed whether it will submit a new case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas), as allowed by the Caf statutes.
The return leg of the May Champions League final was controversial, with Wydad Casablanca refusing to continue playing after a dispute over the video-assisted refereeing (VAR) system. The game was interrupted because the VAR was not available to judge a goal not accepted.
