"Esperance came for a draw. They used time-wasting tactics to frustrate us because they had come for a draw.

"It is something that I am not happy about; especially their goalkeeper who on multiple occasions took a lot of time to take his goal kicks and the referee was just there.”

The return leg will be played on March 17 in Tunisia.
