Just as the football season ended with a powerful Liverpool who crowned European champions for the record-breaking sixth time in English football – things are not going so well on the African continent.
Celebrations in the Tunisian club Esperance for winning the prestigious Caf Champions League were to be short-lived. It was after the chairman of African football, Caf, ordered an answer to dress Tunis to return the trophy and medals – to the amazement of many football supporters across the continent.
The finale between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca ended prematurely after furious Wydad players staged a walk-off, vehemently protesting against the referee's refusal to review the VAR after their concealer had been checked out.
VAR experienced some technical difficulties and could not do the review. After a two-hour marathon, the Caf officials decided to announce Esperance as the winner and then carried out the traditional rituals of passing trophies. However, the fiery Moroccans would have none of this and put up a protest demanding the annulment of the final result.
A strange twist of action, the same Café, who awarded the championship trophy of the continental club's league trophy, changed their decision and ordered the replay, slogging in the voting process – very contrary to the spirit of FIFA's "Fair Play" slogan.
It is worth noting that this kind of endless shameful madness will never take place in Europe or in any other continental competition – it can only occur in Africa, but unfortunately, what else can we expect from the football governing bodies, run by guys who fell out? from playing a favor with their respective associations, on which tickets they are rowing in structures?
African football breaks into pieces with corruption, and if the associations do not plunge into selfish, greedy bloodsuckers, dressed as football administrators, from a pedestal, a beautiful game will become a much sought after delicacy for stray dogs on the African continent.
More disgusting, where have you ever witnessed the final rivalry on two legs, unless you're from Kuvikiland?
Charity begins at home
So, you really believe that the long-awaited NPL award ceremony has been temporarily interrupted. Well, I'm not surprised, considering the cheap nomination of the candidates and the virtually nonexistent criteria applied to the chosen meritorious candidates.
First of all, it goes beyond any understanding of how the organizers reached the tri-range of candidates qualified to the category in the category "Players of the year".
GOOD MORNING !!!! please take into account the logic that suggests that this special distinction is reserved exclusively for the Real McCoys game, in this case FOOTBALLERS.
It is up to them to choose the preferred candidates without any interference or influence, unless my learned colleagues from Football House have a different definition or a modernized interpretation for the real meaning of the prize being considered.
Bobby Samaria was overlooked despite finishing second in the NPL plate race, while claiming he won the inaugural edition of the Standard Bank Top 8 Cup, despite the impressive feats of The Reds in the Caf Champions League.
What really annoys me is that our officials are trying by all means to justify their serial misinterpretation of justice in the way things are done in the South African professional football league (PSL) without looking at their own case scenario.
Earlier this week, social media was full of emotions when the South African lower division club was docked and then demoted for inappropriate behavior.
Some guys quickly compared the YA case, even stating that the NPL are right, subtracting points and not assigning them to the affected opponents. They claimed that the league did not seek to assign points to the teams concerned, just because they did not protest, REALLY?
Now, tell me, since the plaintiffs dictate the terms of sanctions in any court system? I just wonder. The ruling remains the same and may be challenged or challenged only by appeal. You can not throw it in the trash only because you do not agree with the decision. I'm refusing my case.
