CS Sfaxien clinched the Tunisian championship on Wednesday with a 2-1 home victory over Club Africain in their final game of the season.

It is the first title in eight years for the club, but instant success for coach Ruud Krol in his first season in charge.

Sfaxien ended the four-team play-offs with 13 points from six games, one ahead of defending champions Esperance.

Both teams qualify for next year's African Champions League.

Former Netherlands captain Krol joined Sfaxien last November, having had previous championship success in Egypt and South Africa.

Krol's next task is to guide Sfaxien past Enugu Rangers in their Confederation Cup play-off. His side must overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg when they host their Nigerian opponents for the return match on Sunday.
