Coach Maher Kanzari
Tunisian giants, Esperance have parted ways with head coach Maher Kanzari following the club’s failure to reach the final of the Orange CAF Champions League.
Esperance were held to a 1-1 draw by Orlando Pirates of South Africa in the second leg clash on Saturday in Rades, allowing the visitors to advance on the away goal rule after a one-all aggregate after two legs.
The victory denied the ‘Blood and Gold’ a fourth successive appearance in the premier continental club championship.
“President Hamdi Meddeb held a meeting on Monday afternoon with Maher Kanzari to discuss the current situation of the club.
“After a cordial discussion, the two sides agreed to part amicably after the coach failed to achieve the main objective of the club, CAF Champions League,” read a statement on the official website of the Tunisian giants.
His deputy Skander Kasri will act in the interim and assisted by Adel Latrech until a substantive trainer is named.
Esperance were beaten by Egyptian giants Al-Ahly in last year’s final losing 3-2 on aggregate.
Ahly will meet Orlando Pirates in the final over two-legs next month.
