Marek and Yantra finished 1:1 in a Second League match. Ivan Vasilev gave the visitors from Gabrovo the lead in the 57th minute. Marek equalized in the last minute of regular time with a goal by Daniel Gogov, which was accurate from the penalty spot. The 11-meter kick was given due to a handball by Konstantin Ivanov in the penalty area, who himself kicked the ball into his upper limb. The judge of the meeting was the son of the former head of the commission Yordan Stalev – Denislav.
Another damage to Yantra, which leads to lost points, this time in front of the head judge David Borbalan.
Hand play is not considered a foul when the ball ricochets off the body, leg or head of that same player, a teammate or an opponent who is close to him and then touches his hand.
No comment…,” Yantra wrote on Facebook and attached a video of the penalty situation.
The head coach of Yantra – Velislav Vutsov – also erupted against the main referee of the match with Marek – Denislav Stalev.
“We must be very sorry for missing two points, an extremely ready, winnable match. Two situations at the end that deprived us of an absolutely deserved three points. First, an extremely contrived penalty that led to the injury and Tony Ivanov alone against the goalkeeper is absolutely obliged to play in another way, he had time to drink a coffee, ring two phones and score a goal. When you concede a goal like that and a penalty like that is played, where there is a mistake on our part before that, you can’t help but be extremely nervous, because absolutely everyone gave their all, played to their maximum potential at the moment.
Gaps are visible, but there is growth. Defensively there is growth, offensively there is still a lot to be desired, in an inhospitable stadium you deserve the three points, I can’t help but be bitter. I am sadder than the three points lost in Balchik and the two in Lovech. There have been many matches in which we regret more. We are not ready for a very big job, we have progress, we are going well. Well done to the boys for working well all week. We are growing, but slowly, obviously we have to grit our teeth, be ready, and this high step we want will be achieved more slowly.
We knew, unfriendly environment, the pitch is not in great condition, not the worst, but not in good condition. An additional factor – there was a very strong wind, it fell a little towards the end, but it does not give an opportunity. The first half we were with the wind. Marek has not lost at home, it was time to lose, and to a team like ours. We missed a golden opportunity. As much as I regret the invented penalty, I also regret the chance we missed.
I can’t help but notice something else – a referee comes, he makes fun of football. Aman from sons, grandsons, grandmothers, grandfathers. Let someone come and convince me that it is not a mistake to our detriment. We have no complaints about the first penalty, but the second one is a shame. To look after them (b.r. – the head of the judges David Borbalan). I heard that he is being looked at for “A” group, I know that he stained a lot of games in “B” group, we saw it. A foul with between a yellow and a red card he didn’t give a card. An invalid. They will probably punish me again, they will say: “You comment on them again, then they give it back to you”, I can’t tell black from white.
We have personnel problems, 14 outfield players and 4 juniors who are very young, not ready for this battle. These are our finances, these are our opportunities. We will hurry slowly. I have other views. I’m terribly sorry, the boys played a very good match,” commented Velislav Vutsov
