The referee interrupts a match due to Ramadan

Former Algerian Internationals club Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani secured third place in the Premier League on Tuesday after a win over Crystal Palace (2-1).

The meeting referee interrupted the match counting on the 33rd day due to the extra-sporting fact of Ramadan.

In the 34th minute, Wesley Fofana was stopped by the game director to break the Ramadan fast. Graham Scott delayed handing over the pitch from the Crystal Palace keeper, allowing Leicester to join the bench for center-back fuel.

Fofana expresses her gratitude

Then Fofana played the whole game. At the end of the match, he said thank you “Because the Premier League, as well as the Crystal Palace, Vicente Gaita (palace keeper) and all the fox players allowed us to break the fast tonight (Monday night) in the middle of the game. This is what makes football great.”

After the win over Crystal Palace, Leicester City are 62 points ahead of Manchester United (2nd, 67 points) and Manchester City (1st, 77 points). Fox are in a good position to qualify for the Champions League next season.
