V.League referee, assistant out of work because of mistakes

Viet Nam News

HÀ N?I — Referee Tr?n Xuân Nguy?n and his assistant Ph?m Phú Hung have been sidelined due to mistakes made during a V.League match between Hoàng Anh Gia Lai and FLC Thanh Hóa on Saturday.

Hung was said to have been standing in a wrong location on the field, resulting in his not identifying Hoàng Anh Gia Lai’s Ng?c Quang’s off-side position, when he sent a ball to Van Thanh, who then scored a goal for the hosts, Hoàng Anh Gia Lai.

Meanwhile, referee Nguy?n made serious decisions, including issuing a second yellow card to Hoàng Anh Gia Lai’s midfielder A Hoàng, a key reason leading to the hosts’ 2-3 defeat. He also ignored two penalties by Hoàng Anh Gia Lai when their strikers fell in the box area.

“I feel confused at this moment. I am still thinking a lot about the match. It is a heavy pressure job, but I have accepted it,” said Nguy?n.

Their future will be decided during the tournament’s break from April 17 to June 23. — VNS
