The Shocking Moment Assistant Referee Pushed Manager Over In Ghana Vs Sudan Game

The Shocking Moment Assistant Referee Pushed Manager Over In Ghana Vs Sudan Game

Some quite incredible scenes saw an assistant referee push over a manager in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Ghana and Sudan.

Tempers flared over a decision to not award a penalty for a challenge on Abdel Rahman inside the area in the 36th minute and Sudan boss Hubert Velud was fuming with the call.

He became incredibly animated on the touchline and so the assistant referee felt he had to step in. But instead of diffusing the situation, the linesman only escalated it further by putting his hands on Velud.

The shove led to Velud falling over dramatically in the sort of act you'd expect from Neymar or Luis Suarez, but it still doesn't excuse the official's conduct.

Ghana would win the fixture 2-0 courtesy of a brace from Swansea City striker Andre Ayew. The two teams will face off again in the search for AFCON qualification on Tuesday.

There's been no word regarding any potential punishment for the linesman but it's unlikely he will be let off the hook. Back in 2018, Ligue One referee Tony Chapron was banned after kicking out at Nantes defender Diego Carlos.
