For the analyst, if the decision was difficult to make due to his position in the field, he had two other backups: the VAR and the assistant from the west side.
“Now it turns out that it is the fault of a TV channel that they have taken away a legitimate goal from @nacionaloficial. Stop fucking around! The goal was obvious, the judge should have seen it and if he didn’t see it, there are two more instances, the VAR and the assistant on that side. Total? There is a lot of incompetent naming, refereeing and in the VAR… and what about Armenia? Is it the TV’s fault too? Chimbos arguments that only the unwary are eaten. If the VAR requires extra items for his job, ask for them and do the right thing! Enough apologies!”
What was commented by Velez about what happened in Armenia refers to the party of the BetPlay Tournament (second division) between Sports Quindío and Llaneroswhere in the first instance the central judge ordered a penalty and after a phone call he reversed his decision when he was warned that the ball hit the defender’s buttock and not his hand as he initially thought.
