Victor Miguel de Freitas Gomez is 39 years old, born on December 15, 1982 in Johannesburg, of Portuguese descent. He received the international badge in 2011.

Victor Gomez, who refereed the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final between Algeria and Senegal and the 2022 Nations Cup final between Egypt and Senegal, is one of the best referees in Africa and has a good reputation among his colleagues.

Samir Othman, the former international referee, said about him in a previous statement, “Gomez is a businessman, who owns a private plane and is difficult to access, and he is one of the best referees on the continent.”

Gomez managed several matches for Al-Ahly, the most important of which are:

Al-Ahly and Cameroonian cotton

During the 2017 African Champions League, Gomez managed two matches for Al-Ahly in the African Champions League, the first was in the second round of the fourth group competitions against Cameroonian Cotton. Al-Ahly won the double of Junior Ajay and Moamen Zakaria.

Gomez did not award any penalty kicks in the match and did not show a yellow card to any player.

Al-Ahly and the coastal star

In the semi-finals of the African Championship 2017, also, and after Al-Ahly lost to Etoile du Sahel with two goals at Sousse Stadium in the first match, the 38-year-old El Kef was appointed to manage the return match at Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Al-Ahly swept its Tunisian rival by six to two goals in the match that witnessed the brilliance of the Moroccan player Walid Azzaro, the Al-Ahly striker, who scored a “hat-trick” along with the hat-trick of Ali Maaloul, Rami Rabia and Hamdi Al-Naqaz – the star’s defender at the time – and the current Zamalek player who scored an own goal.

The most famous Gomez, 3 yellow cards in the match, went to Mohamed Hani, Ramy El-Badawy and Amin El-Sharmiti.

Al-Ahly and Kampala City

In the second round match of the group stage of the 2018 tournament, Al-Ahly met with Kampala City at Lugogo Stadium, and Gomez took over the management of the match.

Al-Ahly lost the match with two goals without a response, and Walid Suleiman missed a penalty kick in the 24th minute, and the referee issued two yellow cards to Mohamed Hani and Amr Al-Soliya.

controversial goal

Another important confrontation that Victor Gomez managed for Al-Ahly was the second leg of the 2018 CAF Champions League semi-final against ES Setif.

Al-Ahly lost the confrontation 1-2 with a controversial goal that the South African referee calculated based on the banner of his assistant, but the television replay showed that the ball did not cross the goal line of Mohamed El-Shennawy, who was slow to catch it.

unforgettable event

On the local level, Gomez does not have a good history against Musimani, as the former South African Sundowns coach attacked him on more than one occasion, after several cases that sparked controversy during the South African League competitions. Previous that he is looking for the spotlight during his management of matches.

The beginning was in the 2013-2014 season. He awarded 5 penalty kicks in the two teams’ match, to be called later “the penalty kick referee.” Gomez gave three penalty kicks to Sun Downs, he scored one and 2 for Ajax Cape Town, both of them scored successfully. Then the conclusion was in the last season of two seasons with the Brazilians, where he managed Five Sundowns in the South African League, only one of which ended with a Sundowns win

Disagreement with Mosimane

The Sundowns match against the Orlando Pirates in August 2019, which ended in a goalless draw, angered Mosimane, who mocked Gomez’s decisions after the match.

That confrontation witnessed Gomez’s refusal to award a penalty kick in favor of Sundowns, after the ball hit the arm of Orlando Pirates defender Happy Gilly. With the player’s arm, I’m not going to go into that further, but you all saw what happened.”

The series Saddam Musimani and Gomez dates back to years ago, and one of the most prominent facts of this series was that Gomez showed the red card in the face of Musimani, during the Cape Town City match against Sundowns in February 2018, to expel the coach for the first time in his history.

Mosimane strongly protested Gomez’s decision to charge a foul against defender Tibogo Langermann in the first half of the match, which caused Gomez’s decision to exclude the Sundowns coach at that time from the confrontation.

The former Sundowns coach described Gomez as looking for controversy, and added that he wanted to be the “man of the match” always, and wanted to be an attractive spotlight, and sarcastically added: “Gomez made history after he fired me for the first time.”

Mosimane spoke in a different tone after days of his angry statements after the confrontation, but he continued his criticism of Gomez, saying: “Let me tell you something. in enthusiasm.”

Mosimane continued: “But in African matches, he is at the top, because he is calmer. Can you imagine that he could run a match for Mazembe or Vita Club with such excessive enthusiasm? Certainly, there you are forced to enjoy more peace.

But it seems that Mosimane’s statements were not to provoke or belittle Gomez, as the South African referee himself confirmed that he loves the spotlight, when he stated last April that the media should conduct meetings with referees after confrontations, as is the case with coaches and players.

Gomez, famous in South Africa for excessive red cards and penalty kicks, said that at times referees need to explain the law to followers after confrontations, as they are attacked for decisions that are already correct.

Gomez’s excessive counting of penalty kicks prompted Mosimane to describe him in another exciting statement in 2017 as “Benaldinho”, after the derby match he managed between Sundowns and Super Sport, which ended with the first victory with a clean double.
