In the preview of the match that Betis will play against Valencia, the coach Manuel Pellegrini once again referred to what happened in the controversial draw against Sevilla last Sunday, targeting the arbitration and also against the sports director of the rival team.
“Unfortunately, a strange game, I've already said it before, you have to decide whether the referee sends or the VAR sends,” the “Engineer” began by saying, maintaining that “the three actions the referee considered otherwise. It would save the referee from going to see the screen, let the VAR tell him what he is doing and that's it”.
“Despite the fact that the three expulsions can be well done, with the referee next to you, seeing them later on the screen is different. The opinion of the referee who is at the moment of the action is not considered much,” he claimed.
The Betis coach also took aim, without giving his name, against the Sevilla sports director, Monchi, who during the match clashed with the fans in the stands after having entered the field.
“All the external things, extra-sports, actions on the field that are not among the eleven that play, I find it unfortunate”, Pellegrini said.
“Each one is responsible for their attitude and in the two institutions they will see how they behave. The truth is that I don't give it more importance, I personally don't care,” he added.
