CAF ban JS Kabylie over player’s death

22 September 2014, 14:39

JOHANNESBURG - Algerian club JS Kabylie have been barred from African competitions for two years over the fatal assault on Cameroonian footballer Albert Ebosse.

The decision was taken by African football body CAF during a meeting in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

Kabylie finished runners-up in the Algerian title race last season, entitling them to compete in the 2015 CAF Champions League.

CAF acted after Algerian football authorities ordered Kabylie to stage home fixtures behind closed doors at neutral venues this season.

Ebosse died in hospital last month from head injuries having being struck by a piece of slate allegedly thrown by a Kabylie supporter upset at a defeat.

The 24-year-old was hit as he left the field at the end of a league match Kabylie lost 2-1 to Algiers club USMA.

Kabylie are based in northern city Tizi Ouzou and have won the Champions League twice, the African Cup Winners' Cup once and the CAF Cup three times.
