Omar Abdulrahman punished for failure to conduct a flash interview

Al Ain midfielder Omar Abdulrahman Ahmad Al Amoudi was found guilty by AFC Disciplinary Committee as he failed to conduct a ‘flash interview'.

After the final whistle in the first leg of AFC Champions League final match between Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors (KOR) and Al Ain (UAE) on 19 November 2016, the AFC media requested Omar Abdulrahman to give a 'flash interview' on the pitch but he declined the 'flash interview'. 

According to the Art 57.3 of AFC Champions League 2016 Regulations, 'any Participating Player and/or Participating Officials shall participate in a ‘flash interview’ following each Match when he was requested by the AFC'. 

Consequently, Omar Abdulrahman is ordered to pay a fine of USD10,000/- for violating Article 57.3 of the AFC Champions League 2016 Regulations. And, the fine shall be settled within 30 days from the date that this decision is communicated in accordance with Article 11.3 of the AFC Disciplinary Code. 

Additionally, Omar Abdulrahman is informed that a repeat violation of this provision will be met with more severe punishment.
