Cabral leaves Esperance - again

Carlos Cabral had only returned to Esperance in May

Brazilian coach Carlos Cabral has quit Tunisian club Esperance for a second time.

The 63-year-old walked out on the club in protest at the sacking of the team's physical trainer.

It comes just six months after Cabral returned to the club, having been sacked last November after they lost to Club Africain in the Tunis derby.

Esperance were eliminated in the fourth round of this year's Confederation Cup by fellow Tunisians Etoile du Sahel.

Former midfielder and current assistant coach Maher Kanzari will take charge of the team as the national league leaders visit bottom team AS Kasserine on Sunday.
