The Avellaneda classic was left in the hands of Racing Club with a controversial penalty at the end of the game. The referee Mauro Vigliano, far from hiding for what he himself considered a mistake, appeared on the screen of TyC Sports, to give his version of what he saw: “There are no words to describe it. Only the referees know what this type of situation generates for us. I want to make it clear that the referee is the first one who wants his match to be smooth, to finish without problems, without errors. And much more without serious errors like the one I had on Saturday, “said the judge in dialogue with the sports channel’s newscast.
He then added: “I understand the player, the fan, the world that feels harmed by the referee’s decision. I am not victimizing myself, but they do not know the pain it causes us. One decides in a fraction of a second, in a single plane, at a single speed “.
Then, his voice on the verge of breaking, he explained: “The family suffers along with us, one wants to restore confidence to whoever appoints him with a good performance. It is an arbitration error typical of someone who makes a decision in a fraction of a second, it is nothing more than that.”
“Although the claim could seem genuine, the moment of the match also had a lot of weight. It could come from that side. I was convinced until the end that the penalty was criminal. Automatically they began to get a message that they realized that I was There had been an error in the penalty. Then I looked for the play, it did not have a good signal in the dressing room and in the end we could see it, “he added.
Asked about another party action, Novillo’s blow to Saltita González, Vigliano clarified: “Out of respect for González, who ended up in hospital, the situation with Novillo is absolutely fortuitous. One jumps to head with his forehead and another receives the blow on the back of the neck. These situations occur a lot in football and are never a card. Nobody wants to hit head to head, “he said.
