The Congolese Association Football Federation filed a complaint to the Confederation of African Football ‘’ against Egypt’s Al Masry following actions made by the Portsaid-based club after losing to 4-0 in the  semi-final second leg.

Chaos erupted in the stadium after the final whistle of the semi-final encounter as Al Masry players reeked havoc on the pitch. Players destroyed multiple advertising boards and some appeared to throw objects at the crowd.

OPINION: Al Masry’s unacceptable actions perpetuate negative stereotypes of African football

Outside the pitch, the Egyptian team destroyed the away locker room, leaving trash everywhere and destroying equipment that Vita Club had left for them.

On the other side, Al Masry former coach Hossam Hassan was hit by a brick that was thrown by a Vita fan from the stands. He was rushed to the hospital due to his injury.

According to a report from Congolese online newspaper Adiac-Congo, the Congolese Federation sent CAF a complaint about the incidents and that the case will be considered on October 30.

“Players and members of the technical staff of the Egyptian club committed acts of vandalism at the stage of Stade des Martyrs,” the report said. “Plastic chairs were broken, billboards and locker rooms were destroyed.”

After the match, Al Masry former director of football Ibrahim Hassan claimed that the game’s referee Bernard Camille asked for a bribe from the Egyptian side.

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
