Etoile Sahel fire coach Rohr

TUNIS - Former African champions Etoile Sahel have fired German coach Gernot Rohr after finishing a disappointing third in the Tunisian league, the club announced on Friday.

Despite leading the team into the group stages of this year's African Champions League, Rohr was dismissed after Sahel were beaten 4-1 by arch rivals Esperance in their final match of the season on Wednesday.

Rohr had been in charge of the 2007 Africa Champions League winners since November.
