Al Masry: Referees will relegate us
Al Masry’s board of directors have accused the Egyptian referees for injustice.
Sherif Shadwa, a member of the board of the directors of Al Masry, started accusing the Egyptian referees stating two incidents that happened with his team after their loss 1-0 against Zamalek and their draw 1-1 with Misr El-Maqassa which ended with a heated tussle between Al Masry’s players and the referee.
Al Masry faced Misr El-Maqassa in the 30th round of the Egyptian Premier League at Ismaily’s stadium. Misr El Maqassa scored the opening goal after Al Masry’s Wilson Akakio scored an own goal 30 minutes after kick-off. Few minutes before the end of the first half, Ahmed Daouda, who signed for Farag Amer’s Smouha just two days ago, scored the equalizer for Al Masry.
Misr El-Maqassa got a penalty kick in the 96th minute but Al Masry’s Awad saved Hany Said’s shot to give Al Masry their last chance to score on the counter but the referee decided to end the match 1-1. Al Masry’s player ran toward the referee to ask him to get their right for the counter attack but it turned into a fight before the policemen had to interfere to stop it.
Shadwa’s comments came after Al Masry’s penalty kick that was disregarded by the referee in Zamalek’s match which ended 1-0 to the Whitess who are leading the Egyptian Premier League with 63 points and 5 points away from ENPPI who come second.
Shadwa is blaming the referees who are appointed: “The referees abuse us intentionally which will relegate our team,” knowing that Al Masry stand at 12th with 36 point and 3 point away from Haras El-Hodood who are the 16th and lie in the relegation zone.
