Carlos Carvalhal: “Both phases are clear”

Carlos Carvalhal: “Both phases are clear”

The press conference of the Portuguese coach following the match against AEK in Karaiskakis Stadium.

The coach of Olympiacos, Carlos Carvalhal, spoke at the press conference, after the end of the match against AEK at “G. Karaiskakis,” and referred to the referee’s decisions.

In detail, the press conference of the Portuguese coach of the “red-and-whites”:

After the match you talked about dupery. What are your feelings?

I had the opportunity to see the phases again and I insist on my initial impression that the phases and the decisions that an arbitrator has to make are very clear. The VAR can see what is happening, it was not a hand and it was a clear penalty. I do not understand how it can be considered a hand, while there are clear images of a promotional sticker on the player’s shirt, placed on the shoulder, and the ball is resting there. I do not understand why they haven’t seen it. And the subversion is clear – their feet got tangled and it is a clear subversion. Let me remind you that in the match against Atromitos, the VAR guy was asleep. At the time, Podence had been subverted and the VAR did not see it. He was probably sleeping again and these situations have cost us points.

What will you tell the players now in view of the match against Panathinaikos for the cup?

As you can see, the conditions are not the best. After this result, the players do not have the same confidence since they did not get the three points they deserved. But these are the conditions and we have to react and do our best on Wednesday.
