Ibrahim Nour El-Dein: I did not hesitate to rule this penalty
Al Ahly defeated Misr El-Maqassa 1-0 to secure their way to the top of the league as Abdallah El-Said scored the game’s only goal from a penalty.
“Maqassa player admitted that the ball touched his hand,” Nour El-Dein justified his decision to radio 9090, assuring that he himself saw the ball touching Mahmoud Wahid’s hand and not the line referee.
“Do not blame me for a mistake made by the match TV director or because of lack of cameras in the stadium,” he added. “I make decisions according to what happens in the pitch and I did not hesitate to rule this penalty.”
It is worth noting that after this match, Zamalek’s officials made a decision to forfeit the league as the club president, Mortada Mansour, described Nour El-Dein as “a corrupt referee,” and announced that his team will not continue playing in the league as long as he is one of its referees.
