Referee Lamptey banned for life due to match manipulation

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided to ban the Ghanaian match official Joseph Odartei Lamptey (photo) from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) at national and international level for life. The referee was found guilty of breaching art. 69 par. 1 (unlawfully influencing match results) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifying match between South Africa and Senegal played on 12 November 2016.
On the other hand, all charges against the Ghanaian assistant referee David Lionheart Nii Lartey Laryea, whose behaviour had also been the subject of investigations, were dismissed by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee. Further information concerning the South Africa - Senegal match in question will be provided once the decision becomes final and binding.
FIFA follows a zero-tolerance policy on match manipulation and is committed to protecting the integrity of football. As a result, FIFA will continue with its ongoing efforts to combat match manipulation through a variety of initiatives, which include the monitoring of international betting and a confidential reporting system with a dedicated integrity hotline and e-mail address.

Mexican referees affected by injuries

Top Mexican FIFA referee and World Cup candidate Roberto Garcia was injured in December 2016, few days before he refereed the FIFA Club World Cup Final in Japan, for which he had already been assigned. He had a muscle discomfort that turned out to be a muscular tear from which he began to be rehabilitated once he returned from the Far East. However, despite the medical care provided, he has not fully recovered yet. Recently, Garcia (photo) attempted the required fitness tests, but felt pain and chose not to finish. As a consequence, CONCACAF decided to replace him with Cesar Ramos for the FIFA World Cup qualifier Panama – USA on 28 March 2017.
Another international referee, Paul Delgadillo, is also out of the circuit since he was injured on Matchday 5 of the Clausura 2017. Same as Garcia, he took the rehabilitation as recommended; however, when he wanted to do the fitness tests could not finish because he had pain in the affected body part.
Finally, Francisco Chacon is another FIFA referee who has not refereed a single minute since the end of 2016. While he was doing weight work at the gym, one of them fell on his right foot, fracturing it, reason why Dr. Rafael Ortega operated it in Guadalajara, so he is already running, but he is not yet fit to do the fitness test.

PSG sent five-page complaint to UEFA about referee Aytekin

Paris Saint-Germain sent a detailed five-page letter of complaint to UEFA about the performance of referee Deniz Aytekin during last week’s extraordinary Champions League match against Barcelona. It includes a dossier of errors made by the match official. The French club have employed experts, including former international referees, to analyse the match in which Barcelona overturned a 4-0 deficit from the first leg to win 6-1 and progress into the last eight. There were a series of controversial incidents during the game with Aytekin (photo) awarding Barcelona two penalty kicks and coming under extreme pressure from the Spanish side’s players.
PSG have included eight incidents in their report which they have submitted to European football’s governing body, demanding that such mistakes are not repeated. Aytekin awarded Barcelona two penalties during the Nou Camp encounter, and PSG are unhappy with the way he handled pressure from the Catalan side’s players when making key decisions during the match. They have also raised decisions that went in Barcelona’s favour that were deemed questionable, with video evidence and photographs included to back-up their arguments. One such incident was the decision to book the Barcelona striker, Luis Suarez, for diving, only to award him a penalty after appearing to go down to the ground just as easily in the 90th minute. Another case surrounds the failure to award PSG a penalty kick when Javier Mascherano appeared to foul Angel Di Maria in the area, with the Barcelona defender admitting afterwards that he believed it was a penalty. “It is clear that I did foul Di Maria but I think that is not the reason why we eliminated PSG,” Mascherano said after the match. PSG have also raised separate incidents that include the awarding of the first penalty to Barcelona, an apparent stamp by Neymar on PSG defender Marquinhos, a handball by Barca defender Gerard Pique and also a shirt pull from the Spain international that was not picked up by any of the match officials. But despite the dossier being sent to UEFA, PSG are not demanding a replay - an online petition, with no link to the club, has topped 200,000 calling for the game to be played again - or any sanctions against Aytekin. However, PSG have told UEFA that they do not feel they received enough “respect” from the referee while at the same time obviously accepting that their team played poorly to suffer such an amazing reversal.
