Algeria-Cameroon: The news that will hurt the Fennecs very badly

Controversial referee Bakary Gassama has clearly retained CAF’s confidence as he will officiate in the Confederation Cup semi-finals in a week.

Algeria is still awaiting Fifa’s verdict on its appeal filed after the 2022 World Cup play-off against Cameroon, where it denounces numerous arbitration errors on the part of Bakary Gassama. The chances of the match being replayed are very slim, but the Fennecs still cling to this mad hope.

In the meantime, the Algerian people can have confirmation that Bakary Gassama remains in the good graces of CAF. The Gambian referee has been appointed to officiate the semi-final of the Confederation Cup (the equivalent of the Europa League in Africa) between South Africa’s Orlando Pirates and Libya’s Al-Ahly. Bakary Gassama will lead the return match on May 15 in Johannesburg.

“A way for the African apex body to reiterate its confidence in the Gambian who is undoubtedly one of the best whistles on the African continent in recent years”, observes the Actu Cameroun site, which has not shone with its objectivity since the dam in Algeria. It is on this site that Djamel Belmadi, the coach of the Greens, was described as “terrorist”.

It should be noted that, since the Algeria-Cameroon dam, Bakary Gassama had officiated as a VAR referee during the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final between Petro Atletico and Mamelodi Sundowns, on April 16.
