Every now and then, we are reminded why there’s no hope for football in this country. Fans shouting “Shi3a Shi3a Shi3a” while others raise an Islamic flag. Next thing you know, crusaders invade the pitch on their horses. Sectarian so-called football fans, corrupt players and referees, violent unsportsmanlike incidents, match-fixing and a useless federation. That’s the sad truth of Lebanese football.
