Egypt’s FA rubbishes Zamalek, Dakhleya rematch talk
The head of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Competition Committee’s has confirmed that there are no intentions of arranging a rematch between Zamalek and Dakhleya.
The White Knights earned on Sunday their first league win by beating Dakhleya in a match that has seen controversial calls for both sides.
Dakhleya coach Alaa Abdel-Aal has blamed the refereeing for his side’s 3-0 defeat, saying the penalty which was awarded to Zamalek winger Abdallah Gomaa ten minutes into the second half was the turning point of the game and helped the White Castle achieve victory.
Dakhleya coach said that they’ll request a rematch due to refereeing errors, however, head of the EFA’s competition’s committee Amer Hussein revealed that it won’t be possible to arrange a rematch.
“Dakhleya don’t want a rematch. The only condition for a rematch is failure in applying the law and the referee must state that. Otherwise, it would be considered nonsense,” Hussein said.
“Every club have the right to file a complaint to the EFA, which is then sent to the refereeing committee. This is an important step to take in order to decrease the referees’ errors. It is much better than criticising the referee. Things will be better this season,” he concluded.
