The supervisor of the first team in the Emirates Club, the former international referee Abdullah Al-Ajri, said that the Emirati referee needs full confidence in order to achieve the success that everyone wants, while the use of foreign rule is negative on the one hand, and positive on the other. Urgent stressed that one of the advantages of using a foreign referee to lead the important matches in the ADNOC Professional League, which started last season, is that it “contributes to making the citizen referee in a state of constant readiness and continuous development, which is a positive thing, while at the same time it is a negative thing, being The referee robs the citizen of the stardom and distinction that citizen stadium judges deserve, especially in strong and important matches, and those whose results affect the competition for the championship.
He continued to “Emirates Today”: “There is a missing link that will contribute to the advancement of the Emirati government to become in the world better and more distinguished than it is at the present time, which is to give him full confidence to lead the strongest and most difficult matches, and to have media and public support.” Noting that distinguished and trustworthy governance imposes its presence on everyone.
He noted that the level of the Emirati referee is not determined based on the results of the national teams, because there is no relationship between the two, and therefore this matter does not affect the selection of national stadium judges to manage foreign matches, continental or international, or otherwise. Regarding the demands of the first-class clubs’ administrations to use distinguished referees to lead the championship matches, and that the competition not be a test space for the new referees, Al-Ajel said: “I agree with this trend assigning distinguished referees to lead the first division competitions, because the competition is no less important than the ADNOC Professional League matches.
Abdullah Al-Ajl said that the Emirates team has a main goal next season for the amateur league, which is to return to the spotlight and the professionals, by achieving first place. He added, “We want to make the team’s fans and fans happy by achieving the goals and aspirations.”
He stressed that he would not delay in objecting to any arbitral decision he deems unfair to his team, and said that he would appreciate the same circumstances he was going through when he was a referee, but he would not delay supporting his team and objecting to any injustice or fatal arbitration error that his team is subjected to, as he is supervising the Emirates Club first team.
And whether the Emirates Club has a future program to develop talented young people to work in the field of arbitration in the future, he said that this is one of the duties of the Football Association to bring in new referees, but the Emirates Club encourages players to enter these courses and join them because of their importance, indicating that his arbitration experience is at the disposal of any program that contributes In the development of national referees and the refereeing corps in general, stressing that the Emirati football has produced many international referees who can be used by the Football Association to enter the workshops held in clubs to guide players with decisions and new cases.
Abdullah Al-Ajel considered that the most difficult match he led in his career was in the Super Cup when Al-Wahda and Al-Ain tied 3-3, especially the second half of that match that took place in 2018, and Al-Wahda won by penalty kicks. Regarding an arbitration decision he took and wished he had retracted, he explained that there are many decisions he made and are always subject to evaluation, indicating that the decision is taken in a split second, but he is satisfied with all his arbitral decisions, and does not regret any of them, and concluded his speech by saying that the goal he wished to achieve He could not, is the referee in the World Cup.
