Esperance retained their Caf Champions League title in controversial circumstances late on Friday night, and the arguments haven't ended yet

Esperance de Tunis were crowned Caf Champions League winners after Wydad Casablanca refused to return to the field in protest of VAR not being implemented on a goal that was ruled out.

Having trailed 1-0 to a Youcef Belaili stunner in the first-half, the Moroccans thought they’d equalised through Walid El Karti in the 58th minute, but his header was ruled out for offside.

The Tunisian club won 2-1 on aggregate to claim their fourth continental championship in club history. The controversy captured the attention of South Africa's Premier Soccer League club Orlando Pirates' head coach Milutin Sredojevic.

The Serbian went on a scathing criticism of the state of African football, as he felt the goal should've stood for Wydad. You can read his message below, as well as numerous other Tweets on the occasion.

Since the end of the match there have been some startling videos posted on Twitter behind the scenes this weekend. One can catch supporters, club officials and players fighting and having heated arguments about the events on the night.
