Abdel Salam El-Younsi submitted his resignation from the presidency of Club Africain of Tunisia, and informed Wadih al-Jarra, president of the Tunisian Football Federation, that he had decided to formally withdraw from the club’s management, after the many pressures he had faced in the past period.
El-Younsi will issue an official statement, to clarify all the circumstances behind the decision to resign, as well as explain the difficult conditions that the club has experienced over the past period.
Groups of fans’ associations had all agreed on the departure of Abdel Salam El-Younesi as a beginning to get out of the crisis, and a number of well-known former players joined a campaign calling for the departure of El-Younsi and the election of a new president dedicated to solving the problems of the club.
Abdel Salam El-Younsi failed to solve the CAF crises and to provide evidence of debt settlement for the benefit of the Tunisian Football Association, and he was also unable to provide a complete list to the club’s board of directors and financial reports for the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 seasons, as requested by the emergency committee.
The African players had decided to strike from attending training due to lack of financial dues.
The club’s efforts to appoint a new technical manager also failed, after the resignation of Saad Dridi, who announced his departure from his post following the loss to Ittihad Ben Guerdane in the Tunisian League.
