We can only presume that Qatari football has yet to introduce a respect campaign after watching the following footage.
Just over a week ago, Al Gharafah took on Al Khor in the domestic Qatari league with the hosts running out 4-1 winners on the night. Yet the Gharafah victory was overshadowed by the actions of the match referee who was caught on camera cheekily taking a leak on the pitch as the teams waited for a set-play to be delivered during the second half.
Unfortunately Qatari TV felt unable to show the referee’s naughty actions in all its unedifying glory, deciding it best to impose a horrible black box over the officials’s lower regions as the story was replayed on local news.
Footage of the Qatari referee peeing on the pitch can be seen here.
