Controversies[edit]

He has a reputation of being short-tempered which caused him to have a history of on-pitch assault that often exposes him to lengthy suspensions. Among them: In 2001, while playing for the youth team of Fujairah SC, he was sentenced to a one year suspension and a fine of 6,000 Dirhams for verbally and physically assaulting the referee, and throwing a rock at the assistant referee during his team's Cup Match against Al Shabab Club.[1] In 2007, In the season's first League Match against Al Jazira Club, Majed assaulted the assistant referee, Saeed Al Hoti. He was then sentenced to a 13-match ban and a 10,000 Dirhams fine.[2] It was reduced later by the Appeal Committee to 5 matches only.[3] In 2011, a single match ban and 1,000 Dirhams fine were imposed on Majed Naser for throwing one of the chairs scattered around the pitch during a League match against Al Wahda FC.[4] In 2012, Majed received a 17-match ban and was fined 30,000 Dirhams after slapping Ahli Dubai's coach Quique Flores after the semi-final of the Etisalat Cup. Majed announced his retirement of football following the ban sentence,[5] but has changed his mind later. In 2012, Majed had been suspended by his club for the entire 2012–13 season following a red card for butting an opponent in a defeat by Al Muharraq SC.[6]
