Saad Bguir: My name will be written in history
Esperance claimed the title after overcoming a 3-1 away loss at the hands of Africa’s most successful club Al Ahly to win 4-3 on aggregate as they went on to win their third Champions League trophy in history.
The first leg witnessed dramatic VAR conflicts with the referee awarding three penalties and a suspension for the Moroccan international Walid Azaro for tearing up his shirt claiming that the Tunisian defender cut it off during the foul awarded in the penalty area.
A wave of extreme anger flew over the Tunisian side Esperance which affected the suspension of Walid Azaro and a huge fine of 20 thousand dollars for the Red Devils in addition to Al Ahly coach Patrice Carteron being called up for investigation to appear before the Disciplinary Board for a hearing regarding allegations of unsporting behavior.
“When you feel injustice, this is what you get in return,” Saad Bguir revealed following the win over Al Ahly.
“I thank God for victory, now my name will be written in the history of scoring two goals in the final against Al Ahly.”
Bguir is somewhat regarded as the man to win the finals in Tunisia after scoring a brace in last year’s Arab Champions Cup for Esperance to win the multi-million dollar title against Al Faisaly.
“I dedicate the victory to the great audience who attended the meeting and to our former coach Khaled Ben Yahia who made an effort with us as well,” Bguir concluded.
