The Algerian referee, Mehdi Abid Charef, has aroused strong controversy over social networks since yesterday's controversial performance in the African Champions League final between Al Ahly of Egypt and Esperance Tunis.
Abid Charef whistled three penalty shots in the final Jump of the LDC which ended in a victory of Al Ahly against ES Tunis.
Tunisians accuse the Algerian referee of having skewed the result by whistling two penalties for the Egyptians and causing the suspension of two players for the second leg.
Note, moreover, that the man in black whistled a penalty in favor of Tunisians who was, moreover, transformed by Youcef Belaïli.
This controversial performance adds to the controversy over Algerian arbitration, particularly in foreign media.
The referee wanted to kill the final in this match. He could not do better. 2 gift penalties. 2 players suspended in the second leg.
