Cameroonian referee Max Essouma has been banned for one-year after a poor showing in a CAF Confederation Cup game between Moroccan duo Raja Casablanca and RS Berkane.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) handed out the punishment after Raja lodged a complaint claiming they were denied “three clear penalties and a legitimate penalty.” which they perceived were ‘blatant refereeing mistakes’.
The Moroccan’s believe this incidents denied them a win following a 0-0 draw in the Group A clash on Sunday.
A CAF statement read: “Following the weak and unsatisfactory performance which had an impact on the final result of the match … the CAF Referees Committee has decided to suspend referee Antoine Max Depadoux Effa Essouma for one year.”
