Moroccos Wydad Club refused to manage the Jambian referee Bakari Jasama Al-Ahly’s match in the African Champions League semi-finals, especially since it was one of the champions of last year’s Africa Cup crisis against Esperance, which reached the International Court, and has not ended yet.
Mohamed Talal, the official spokesman for the Wydad Club, said in exclusive statements to “Al-Watan Sport”: The African Union did not inform us of anything, and we have not yet reached information about this matter, but we totally reject it, everyone remembers what Jassama did in the Esperance match, we do not want him in a sensitive match like Al-Ahly match.
Sufficient to reveal the fact that Jasama chose to face Al-Ahly and Al-Wedad
A source inside the African Union revealed the truth of the referee, Carre Jessama, to manage the Al-Ahly and Al-Wadad match in the African Champions League semi-finals, according to Moroccan press reports during the past hours.
The source said in exclusive statements to “Al-Watan Sport”: “Until now, no referee has been chosen for any match, whether in the African Champions League or the Confederation, and it is natural that the name of Bakari Jasama will be offered among them for his great experience, and he will certainly manage one of the matches.” .
He continued: “Jasama whose name is already mentioned in the Al-Ahly and Al-Wadad match, and accompanied by two other referees, but none of them was chosen until this time.”
And Moroccan reports shocked Al-Ahly fans, after they revealed the management of the Gambian referee in Carre Jassama, the Al-Ahly and Al-Wadad match in the African Champions League semi-finals, scheduled for next September.
