Gassama was criticised in Algeria for decisions he made during their defeat to Cameroon in a 2022 World Cup qualifying tie on 29th March. Belmadi said: "Never again will we allow a few people to conspire against our country. I have to say, I didn't like at all to see the following day when this referee (Bakary Gassama) left from Algiers airport, to see him comfortably seated in the lounge suite with a coffee and a pastry. I didn't like that. I didn't like the fact that we would accept these kinds of things. He stole the hope of a whole nation, and we treat him like this. I'm not saying you have to kill him, I'm not saying things like that. But he's a bully, more than a bully. We can't ever accept that again." Samuel Eto'o, the president of Cameroon's football federation, has said his organisation is also considering complaining to FIFA over Belmadi's comments.
