Congo Brazzaville side AC Leopards claim that some of their players were beaten by unruly fans after they beat Medeama in Ghana via a penalty shootout.
Following their 2-0 home win in Dolisie in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup play-offs against Medeama, AC Leopards lost the return game on the same score line on Sunday in Ghana and had to win a penalty shoot-out to progress.
But what they experienced from the home supporters was “scandalous” according to their coach Patrick Aussems, who said they have suffered unacceptable pressure from the local fans.
“I have been in professional football for thirty years as a player and then a manager and I have never experienced before what we had to suffer in Ghana.
“We are talking about fair-play, but we had to witness things absolutely outrageous,“ Aussems told Congo-based media Les Dépêches de Brazzaville.
“The break lasted for 35 minutes as we couldn’t get out with some of my players getting beaten. This is something truly scandalous,” added the coach of AC Léopards, who was however happy with the outcome for his team.
“We have been working very seriously for four months. We are going to enjoy this qualification which is extremely important, and then get back to work.”
