Dhe English footballer Raheem Sterling has apologized for his swallows in the Champions League match of Manchester City against Shakhtar Donetsk, but still earned a lot of mockery and mockery. "I do not know what happened. I have not felt any contact and would like to apologize to the referee, "said the 23-year-old after the 6-0 victory of his Citizens at BT Sport.
Sterling opened the scoring in the 24th minute at the score, putting his left leg in the grass and then going down. Referee Viktor Kassai gave a penalty, which Gabriel certainly transformed Jesus. Sterling had to endure scorn and ridicule on social networks. "Can Sterling continue his career after the brutal foul?" One user asked, another said, "Bad foul from the uncut grass."
Manchester team manager Pep Guardiola took the scene as an opportunity to call for the use of a video referee (VAR). "We immediately realized that it was not a penalty. Raheem could have said that, "said Guardiola at BT Sport:" The referees want help, the VAR would have needed for the decision three seconds. "The introduction of video evidence is planned in the Champions League for the 2019/20 season. It is surprising, however, why Guardiola in the sense of fair play did not immediately point out the wrong decision, if he had recognized it according to their own information immediately. That would have helped the referee as well – and his player as well.
