huge rant against the VAR and an “amateur” arbitration

On the side of the PSG, we were very upset against the arbitration last night, and the message passed in front of the press in a scathing way …

Last night, PSG had another bad European night with a home defeat against Wolfsburg in the quarter-finals of the Champions League (0-1). Enough to place the capital club on an unfavorable waiver before the return match. A PSG which has not digested arbitration decisions that weigh heavily.

Indeed, the match changed on the hour mark when Elisa De Almeida was penalized for a contentious hand in the area. A penalty but also a red card, two decisions which provoked a rant from Gerard Prêcheur who did not hesitate to cut out the VAR and the arbitration after the meeting in front of the press.

“I have the feeling that the refereeing was not in our favor. Without the VAR, we win the match, that’s how it is. It’s harder and harder with age, the VAR. I put a game plan that we respected, and finally I entrust my professionalism and the professionalism of the players to amateurs, that annoys me. There are rules that I dispute. The yellow card on the arm, it seems surreal to me compared to what I have experienced in my career, that it could deserve a yellow card. The return match? Of course, it will be difficult. The difficulty is that we are obliged to score, it changes the game plan, but we will not have the same referees. »
