And he continued: The Board of Directors of Al-Hilal, from an early period, addressed “K” warning of the consequences of what would happen, supported by evidence that was clear indicating hate speech, racism and obscene abuses, and demanded that the match be played behind closed doors while providing protection for the Al-Hilal mission, which was rejected by the African Union.
And follow the statement of Al-Hilal: The Board of Directors opened channels of communication with the Confederation of African Football, and we will submit the complaint to it, and all these words have been translated and documented in all languages, and they will be in the next few hours at the table of the Confederation of African Football and the International Federation.
