Accra, Nov. 30, GNA - Moroccan side, Raja Casablanca, has been sanctioned by the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF), after bizarre incident in their first leg clash against Congolese side, AS Vita in Confederations Cup final.
Last Sunday's final encounter was marred by fans of Raja throwing missiles onto the pitch as well lighting up flames, which halted the game for three minutes.
Raja Casablanca forward Moussine Iajour was caught in a head butt incident and was sent off by the referee.
The Disciplinary Council of CAF, after a meeting last Wednesday, arrived at the following decisions:
1. Suspension of the player Number 9, Moussine Iajour for the next three matches, namely match CC 170 AS Vita Club (DR Congo) vs Raja Club Athletic (Morocco) and his next two games in the context of the CAF Inter-Club competitions;
2. A fine of US $ 5,000 (five thousand US dollars) for the use of smokes by supporters.
3. A fine of US $ 5,000 (five thousand US dollars) for throwing bottles and other projectiles by the supporters.
The second leg encounter would take place at Stade des Martyrs, Kinshasa as AS Vita, would have to overturn the 3-0 deficit to win their first Confederation Cup title.
