Hussein El-Shahat lashes out on match official after defeat to Al Wasl


Al Ain winger has expressed his anger at the match official of Al Ain’s game against in the UAE President Cup which saw the exit of Al Ain from the competition.

Al Ain were ousted from the President Cup after a thrilling 5-3 defeat to Al Wasl. Al Wasl stunned the home team in the first half with three goals.

Caio and El-Shahat reduced the deficit in the second half but Al Wasl were able to extend their leader once again to end it with a 5-3 lead to reach the quarterfinal.

“Is VAR applied on only one team or both sides? It was applied against us only,” El-Shahat criticized the referee.

“In what football this happens? We lost because of what the referee did. He didn’t go back to check VAR unless it was a call against us. With each goal we score he went to check VAR but never did the same with Al Wasl.”
