CAF’s Panel of Refereeing Experts has expressed its indignation to the General Secretary following the physical assault of the referees at the end of the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Confederation Cup between ASC the Jaraaf of Dakar and Coton Sport FC of Cameroon.
CAF General Secretary Veron Mosengo-Omba wished a speedy recovery to the injured and strongly condemned such physical attacks on match officials.
He called for an in-depth investigation by the competent bodies of CAF.
“These acts of incivility cannot be tolerated. They have no place in our football, but unfortunately they tend to become widespread on the pitch. CAF reserves the right to revise, upwards, the scales of sanctions for these acts,” he declared.
Mr. Mosengo-Omba took the opportunity to confirm his intention to make proposals for an in-depth reform of CAF’s judicial bodies to allow them to act more effectively.
