an open disciplinary investigation – La Nouvelle Tribune
A week ago to the day took place at the Stade de l’Amitié in Cotonou, the final of the African Football Confederation Cup. The meeting opposed the Algerians of the JS Kabylie to Moroccans from Raja of Casablanca. It was Raja who won the trophy. And the least we can say is that for the first time, Benin has successfully organized this great sporting event. However there was a small shadow on the board, perfection not being of this world.
They disrupted the official ceremony
Indeed, after the referee’s final whistle, « A group of supporters invaded the playing area and disrupted the official medal and trophy ceremony ». A fact that has not escaped the Confederation of African Football (Caf). « Following the incidents that occurred during the CAF TotalEnergies Confederation Cup final between Raja Club Athletic and JS Kabylie in Cotonou, on Saturday July 10, 2021, CAF announces the opening of a disciplinary investigation » can we read on the official website of the umbrella body of African football.
This survey will make it possible to « Determine the responsibilities of these excesses and apply possible sanctions, with the aim of preventing such incidents from recurring ». The Caf strongly condemned these behaviors that it judges « Unacceptable, harmful to the image of one of its competitions ».
