England’s Mark Clattenburg, chairman of the Football Association’s refereeing committee, confirmed that Al-Ahly club did not deserve a second penalty kick during their match against Ceramica Cleopatra, in the tenth round of the Egyptian League competitions.

The match between Al-Ahly and Ceramica saw Ali Maaloul fall in the penalty area of ​​the Ceramica Cleopatra team to claim a second penalty kick of the match, but Ibrahim Noor El-Din, the referee of the match, did not count anything after his return to video technology.

Today, Sunday, the Football Association published a video clip on its Facebook page, in which Clattenburg revealed his views on the decisions of the referees during the matches of the ninth and tenth rounds of the Egyptian league.

Clattenburg said in the video clip of Ali Maaloul’s fall: “The referee allowed play to continue after two players competed for the ball in the penalty area. The video referee reviewed the situation and agreed with the referee’s decision.’

He added: “I agree with the decision of the referee and the video referee to continue play, although there was slight contact with the striker’s leg by the defender as he fought for the ball.”

And he continued: “That contact was inconsistent with the way the hitter went down, which gave the referees the impression that the hitter was trying to gain something from that contact.”

And the English pundit concluded: “Because football is a contact sport, I prefer in such cases of contact, if the referees have any doubts, to allow the game to continue.”
