The Caf General Secretariat Veron Mosengo-Omba has issued out a statement following the assault of the referees at the end of the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Confederation Cup between ASC Jaraaf of Senegal and Coton Sport FC of Cameroon.
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.
Meanwhile, he also confirmed that his intention is to make proposals for an in-depth reform of Caf’s judicial bodies to allow them to act more effectively.
