“The gap with the participant is crucial, you aren’t his buddy”
Up to date:
Betis couldn’t rely on Sergio Canales within the match with Atlético de Madrid final Sunday. The midfielder was suspended after the expulsion within the final moments of Cádiz-Betis akin to the tenth day of the First Division championship.
The choice of the referee of the match, Mateu Lahoz, generated controversy. And this Monday, the president of the Referees Technical Committee, Luis Medina Cantalejo, provided his opinion in El Larguero.
«The very first thing I did once I heard and noticed what had occurred was speak to Mateu. He gave me his clarification of what had occurred. We’ve got all of the sound of VAR. I heard from minute 60 that Sergio enters till the tip and there are solely three sentences. One is ‘good luck, Sergio’.
One other, Sergio reproaches him for a foul not referred to as and Mateu tells him ‘they’re telling me that I’ll have been flawed’. And the final one is ‘in case you proceed, you permit’. He adopted and left. The referee is heard. Canales is 4 or 5 meters away. He doesn’t make gestures », commented Medina Cantalejo.
«As for what the administration was, I spoke personally with Mateu about how these final minute conditions needs to be dealt with. Particularly an skilled referee. It was a protest. With a participant who, as well as, is sort of right, “added the president of the Referees Technical Committee.
«Then I’ve spoken with the individuals who needed to discuss Betis in a really calm approach and that has been left there. Solely, the subsequent time that Mateu and Sergio meet, I hope they dedicate themselves to calling penalties and others to scoring objectives. “The gap with the participant needs to be important, you aren’t his buddy,” stated Medina Cantalejo.
