AFCON 2019: Algerian Coach Blasts Nigerian Journalist Ahead Of Semi-Final Clash


Algeria coach, Djamel Belmadi, was furious with Nigerian reporter, Chisom Mbonu-Ezeoke, during a press conference on Saturday, ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations semi-final.

The antics of North African footballers, have been one of the talking points in the build-up to clash.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Algerian star Ramy Bensebaini was seen slapping himself in the face with Wilfried Zaha’s hand, before falling to the floor clutching his head, during the quarterfinal tie between Algeria and Ivory Coast on Thursday.

At Saturday’s pre-match press conference, Mbonu-Ezeoke described the behavior of Bensebaini as “terrible”, a remark that did not go down well with Belmadi.
