Shukri Al Hanfoush referee match Al Hilal and Al Nasr

Saudi 360 – The Referees Committee of the Saudi Football Association decided to return the referee, Shukri Al-Hanfoush, to manage matches after he was excluded from arbitration for any match in the fourth round.

The Saudi Al-Riyadiah newspaper revealed that the Referees Committee had returned Shukri Al-Hanfoush to lead the league matches, as he was assigned to match Al-Raed and Abha in the next round of the league, after stopping the last round.

Al-Hanfoush returns to manage matches again:

The Saudi newspaper indicated that the referee Muhammad Al-Howaish will manage the Al-Ahly and Al-Shabab match, while Faisal Al-Balawi will manage the Al-Faisali and Al-Ittihad match in the fifth round of the Professional League.

Al-Hanfoush managed the exciting match that brought together Al-Shabab and Al-Nassr, which ended with a two-goal victory for the first during the third round of the Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Professionals Cup League competition, on November 1.

Al-Shabab advanced with a first goal through its defender Ahmed Sharahili in the 56th minute, a goal that sparked a great debate about his health due to suspicion of an offside. Al-Nasr tied with Ayman Yahya’s goal in the 61st minute, then Ever Banega scored the winning goal before the end of the match with a penalty kick.

After this match, President Al-Nasr Safwan Al-Sweiket demanded that all his team’s matches be entrusted to foreign refereeing teams, which was rejected by the arbitration committee and the Football Association.

In another context; The fifth round of the Saudi League competition will witness the fiery Riyadh derby match between Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal teams next Monday, which will be held at King Fahd International Stadium, “the jewel of the stadiums”.
