And he spoke for the first time about arbitration, and it was after the Al-Nasr match, and after that all the arbitrators and the referees’ committee proved that all opinions were incorrect, and we did not see him retract his opinion, and I do not know what the president of Al-Batin Club said, but what I saw of the referee’s performance in our match against Al-Batin I will demand Foreign referees for all upcoming confrontations.
