Krol Names 6 Esperance Players In Tunisia Squad

Former Orlando Pirates coach, Ruud Krol, has named six of Esperance’s players, who could be facing Bucs in this weekend’s CAF Champions League semi-finals match, in the Tunisian national side for their upcoming first round World Cup qualifier.

Krol, who coached Bucs from 2008 till 2011, clinched one treble winning season with the Soweto giants in the 2010/11 season.

The Dutch mentor is currently coaching Tunisian side CS Sfaxien where he won the 2012/13 Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1, which means that Krol’s men will participate in the 2014 CAF Champions League. CS Sfaxien are currently still in the semi-finals of the 2013 CAF Confederations Cup.

Krol was named interim coach of the Tunisian national side on September 13, 2013, following the resignation of the previous coach, Nabil Maaloul. This means that the Dutchman has to juggle club and country in the next few weeks in an attempt to secure World Cup qualification as well as fulfilling his ambition of climbing to the top of the Tunisian club log

Krol has named six of Esperance’s players in his 26-man squad to face Cameroon on October 13, in the first leg of their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Goalkeeper Moez Ben Cherifia, defenders Chamseddine Dhaouadi, Khalil Chemmam and Sameh Derbali, and midfielders Khaled Mouelhi and Hocine Ragued form part of the Tunisian squad and are all currently in South Africa to take on Pirates in the first leg semi-finals match of the 2013 CAF Champions League.
