Tresaco and senior advisors of “FIFA and the Asian” support the decision of the Shamrani referee
The controversy over the “arbitration decisions” loomed over the Saudi sports scene, specifically after the end of the 13th round of the Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Professionals Cup League, which prompted the Spaniard Tresaco, head of the referees committee in the Saudi Football Association, to intervene and express his frank opinion about Al Hilal’s protest against Saudi referee Majed Al-Shamrani allegedly neglecting a penalty kick in his favor in the third minute of stoppage time, during the match that brought him Al-Ahly the day before yesterday.
The Spaniard Fernando Tresaco, head of the referees committee in the Saudi Football Association, agreed with the decision made by Majid Al-Shamrani, referee of the Al-Ahly match and his guest Al-Hilal not to count a penalty kick in the 93rd minute of the confrontation, which ended in a goalless draw, a decision that raised the ire of the Hilalis.
“We must consider that the penalty kick is the biggest penalty in football during matches, and it gives a great advantage to the beneficiary team, so the referee must be 100 percent sure of his decision,” Tricaux said, through his official account on the social networking site “Twitter.”
The head of the referees committee added: This situation is not gray. We can see in the video that both players make a mistake, the defender who tries to play the ball kicks the attacker’s foot in an indifferent manner, and the striker who does not try to play the ball just looks for contact with the defender and pushes him with his knee and hip and also blocks the defender’s foot In a dangerous way then he falls.
Tresaco concluded his discussion of this controversial situation in agreement with the decision of the match referee Majid Al-Shamrani, who returned to VAR and declared that there was no penalty in favor of Al-Hilal, as Tricaque explained: This is not only my opinion, but also the opinion of the senior coaches in FIFA and the AFC who were consulted, The best decision here is to play “without penalty”.
The end of the match witnessed a great excitement from the Romanian Razvan Lucescu, coach of Al Hilal, who headed towards the referee of the match, Majid Al Shamrani, as shown by the cameras of the official carrier and told the referee: You know it is a penalty kick, but you do not have the courage to count it.
