Undoubtedly one of the most painful moments that the hobby of the Eagles of the America In recent years, it was the final lost in the Apertura 2019 tournament, against the Scratched of Monterrey. Without a doubt, the Azulcremas were terribly affected by arbitration, something that anti-Americanists do not usually say.
One of the most affected by this was the Argentine midfielder Guido Rodríguez, who received a clear foul during the match, which the referee of the match did not want to mark. That is why the footballer of the Real Betis, spoke on this very controversial topic.
The VAR, let’s see … It is difficult to talk about this, ha. The VAR, many times, helps the referees and we players have to understand them because it is difficult to direct. The truth is difficult … We can all simulate a move to take advantage, it is difficult. In many ways it helps the referees, but there are times when it is up to them. There are things that are clear and, therefore, the referee does not see it that way on the screen. It happened to us in the Final that we played in Mexico.
They caught me in a corner, it was very clear and they did not charge. They warned him about the VAR and went to see him. I thought: ‘That’s it, it’s criminal’. And he came and didn’t collect it! They are things that define a lot but later, beyond being an injustice, it is up to the referee. Personally, I prefer to say that the referee has not seen it in the game and not that they do not charge me for having seen it on a screen. That is what gives me the most impotence ”
– Guido Rodríguez
Without a doubt, Guido has not had a good concept of the famous VAR since then, which was useless in the last controversial final of Mexican Soccer, where arbitration clearly and directly harmed the Americanist team.
