THE BALL – “João Pinheiro influenced the outcome” (Sporting)

Defending that “the workforce should be increasingly united to face all these adversities which might be occurring to us”, Miguel Braga, Sporting’s director of communication, has been on the program ‘Raio-X’, on the tv of the membership, and has criticized harshly. the work of the referee João Pinheiro in the match between the lions and FC Porto, in the last of the League Cup, he who had already signed controversial referees in the matches between the two groups, particularly the one which occurred in Dragão and ended with an enormous ‘sururu’ and expulsions in the combine.

“The large query is {that a} 12 months handed between one recreation and the different and, if I’m not mistaken, João Pinheiro has refereed extra classics in the meantime and his efficiency in Benfica-FC Porto, if I’m not mistaken, was praised”, stated Miguel Braga, and added: “The subject isn’t the nomination, however what occurs on the pitch. This is what ended up marking the recreation once more and João Pinheiro has the energy to, as soon as once more, take us a title for his efficiency. The conclusion reached, and listening to the phrases of the president, is that it is extremely simple to expel gamers from Sporting, in the similar approach that it is extremely troublesome to expel gamers from FC Porto.”

Miguel Braga then introduced some numbers. “To provide you with an concept of ​​the numbers the president was speaking about, FC Porto, regardless of being despatched off in these 5 video games, by no means performed towards us in numerical inferiority. Do you know the way lengthy Sporting performed, in 5 video games, with one much less? And I’m solely counting right down to 90 minutes. 86 minutes! That is to say, in 5 days, Sporting performed 86 minutes in numerical inferiority towards FC Porto. And that is, at the very least, cause for reflection, and to attempt to perceive what may occur.

– The president says that there was a lot rigor, all the time very effectively utilized to the Sporting gamers, but when we have a look at the entire match there was by no means this rigor for the FC Porto gamers, as a result of in any other case the recreation would have been totally different , with multiple expulsion at FC Porto, till the time of Paulinho. And at the time of Paulinho, and the photos have been circulating, the FC Porto gamers have been always mocking the Sporting gamers, simulations, and none of this was sanctioned by the referee or the VAR. There is one in every of the performs that the referee can have an excuse to not see, I might say that for the VAR this excuse doesn’t exist, as a result of it’s exactly to see these aggressions, some of these fouls that may fail the referee», he stated

And he strengthened: “The conclusion reached, after analyzing, the ease with which gamers are expelled from Sporting, and the incontrovertible fact that in 5 days we have now performed 86 minutes in numerical inferiority with FC Porto , is that the time has come for folks to mirror slightly on these numbers, like soccer.”

The referee additionally criticized the approach FC Porto performed. “Not to say that there have been two utterly totally different elements, one through which soccer was performed and the place we had the misfortune of shedding once we deserved to win, after which the second, the place soccer was not performed and the place there was a workforce. to tease And in these fixed simulations and deception, and giving pinches and making these little calls, after which everybody may be very blissful as a result of they go their very own approach”, he emphasised, then blamed “two groups” for this example: ” It was a pity for Portuguese soccer didn’t preserve the stage of the first half, however that didn’t occur thanks to 2 groups and neither of them is Sporting, however the refereeing workforce and FC Porto, clearly”.

Miguel Braga has no doubts. “In view of what we have now stated and written, from the second {that a} refereeing workforce doesn’t see an aggression, doesn’t mark a number of fouls, doesn’t give yellow playing cards to simulations, that makes so many errors, sadly all by the similar aspect, finally ends up clearly influencing the outcome”, he highlighted, mentioning, in his opinion, the most severe error: “The most obtrusive error isn’t seeing an aggression in the 67th minute and Pedro Gonçalves finally ends up yellowing. […] A foul yellow card for Sporting and a spare purple card for FC Porto.”

Miguel Braga has as soon as once more emphasised the significance of the audios between the referee and the VAR being launched, taking the alternative to peck at Arouca. “In the Arouca recreation it will have been very helpful even for the Arouca managers to not reveal their ignorance of the VAR protocol, they might have had a lesson there, dwell, in coloration and dwell. That is why this pedagogical a part of the rationalization finally ends up, as we stated, eliminating a few of the noise round soccer as a result of the rationalization is there, we hope, as a result of we have now not but seen this expertise accomplished in Portugal, however the La the concept that the communication between the VAR and the referee is audible to these at residence or in the stadium, has precisely this didactic character,” he stated.

“I hope it is going to be a actuality in Portugal in the very close to future. And that can assist make a few of the selections which might be made come true. And make identified the guidelines of the recreation, which is all the time fascinating”, he added.

Finally, the referee was assured about the welcome to SC Braga: “We have a really troublesome recreation, the first of the second spherical, we hope that the workforce will really feel assured about what they’ve performed and go after the outcome that issues, which is victory”.
