Mortada: Referees’ current actions show revenge intentions
Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour believes that the level of officiating his team faced in their match against Tanta in the Egyptian Premier League is coming out of revenge on the President after he alleged that referees are taking bribes.
Mansour has slammed the Egyptian Football Association ‘EFA’ after the White Knights dropped two points in their away encounter against Tanta in a game that was surrounded by much controversy as Tanta were assigned two dubious penalty calls. The Whites have announced their withdrawal from the league right after this game.
“What is happening now has nothing to do with Al Ahly, referees have revenge intentions against me because of the bribery petition I made,” Mansour said in radio comments.
Zamalek are currently in the fourth place in the league table after concluding the first five rounds with only nine points.
“There is a difference between referees’ mistakes and what is happening now with Zamalek,” he added. “Head of refereeing committee Essam Abdel-Fattah should confirm mistakes made by referees so everyone can calm down, and punishment for such mistakes must be decent.”
“Referees should not be treated like gods when they make mistakes they have to be seriously punished so that such mistakes are not repeated again,” he concluded.
