The coach of Kiryat Shmona is upset after the 3-0 against Maccabi Haifa: "Very frustrated. The referee gave the kicker a wait of 10 minutes. I do not understand why the Haifa spokesman shouted and celebrated near our bench."
Comes to complaints about the judging
Although it lasted until the 74th minute, Kobi Refuah's Kiryat Shmona suffered its first loss of the season tonight (Saturday) after 3-0 against Maccabi Haifa. Dolev Haziza scored with a penalty (74), Nachmias scored an own goal 4 minutes later and Nikita Rokavica also allowed (84) .In the first half, Lucio fell in the box, but referee Gal Leibowitz decided to cancel a penalty that was whistled to the hosts' credit, at the end of an 8-minute consultation!
At the end of the 90 minutes, Refuah did not hide the storm of emotions he was in and shot: "The Maccabi Haifa spokesman stands by our bench and says 'give them three pieces'. Go to the other side, be happy with your team."
On Gal Leibowitz's refereeing: "
Did you see the game and the two teams, did you not feel what happened? I do not want to comment on the referee, but today it was already beyond imagination. It is so annoying, Maccabi Haifa is a good team even without this or that referee ruling. "0: 3 does not reflect what was here, we have a good team and this loss will not prevent us from moving forward."
"Now we will lift the players, we want to be at the top," added Medicine, "We have a good team, 70 minutes today we were in the game and we also reached the penalty. I do not understand the penalty part, the referee gives the kicker a wait of 10 minutes, people wait a quarter of an hour. "I am very frustrated by this. Everything that is convenient for the judges, then they do VAR, they are not comfortable, there is no VAR. Even when you score a goal, you check for a quarter of an hour. This is a joke."
Kiryat Shmona captain Idan Nachmias added: "It always hurts to lose, probably 3: 0 and even after my own goal. It is unpleasant and painful. I will have a hard time tonight, but I will move on. We already have Hapoel Beer Sheva next week. Fresh for the next game. "
