Mendilibar: “I think VAR makes them referees worse”

Jose Luis Mendilibar He was very critical of the arbitration, although he bit his tongue, in the press conference after Seville-Celticwhere his team won 2-0 despite playing with one less player from the 18th minute, Pape Gueyeand ended up drawing and having another expelled, coin.

The Basque was asked about the number of red cards for The league compared to those Premier and very clearly: “The statistics are there, clearly. Here we are all cheaters, starting with us, coaches and players. What happens, happens. We are not very honest with our rivals, colleagues. The arbitration issue doesn’t do much either.”

Mendilibar did not elaborate on the expulsion of Acuña because of what he said Pizarro Gomezbut Gueye was stopped on both cards. “A player with the ball, I don’t think he elbows the goal (the playing of the first yellow). That he calls for a foul, okay, but yellow… The second one, I don’t know, is a tackle that he let go and after ten seconds he calls for a foul, suddenly it’s yellow and then he sends it off. Because of what the fourth officer told you? I don’t know, someone will say it’s like that. I think VAR makes them worse referees,” he said. The technician bit his tongue. “I’ve said what I had to say, that they can…”.

Finally, thanked the fans for their support and he wanted, before leaving, to highlight the work of his players. “If in the 22nd minute they tell us to tie, we will still sign and in the end the result will be bad. That’s what happens on the pitch, we can’t say anything, because I think the goals are all legal . We leave with the face of a foolthat there are many people who will not be able to play tomorrow”.
