Tunisia coach boycotts press conference

Listen to article

Tunisia coach Roger Lemerre stormed out of a post match press conference at the end of his team's 2-2 draw with Senegal on Wednesday evening, as members of the Senegalese press fought among themselves.

Once Lemerre had left, his opposite number Henry Kasperczeck took it upon himself to get the situation under control and lashed out at the journalists.

In a harsh address to them Kasperczeck said:''This is not the first time in the last couple of days when you have gone over the top, your behaviour reflects badly not on you as individuals but on Senegal as a nation.

''I ask you to be calm at these press gatherings and respect other people who are attending them as well this behaviour is unacceptable.''

Man of the match Diomansy Kamara also had a run in with journalists from his home country, and he too lashed out and appealed for better behaviour from them at media gatherings.
