Monaco-Metz: Antonetti castigates arbitration "dramatic"

After FC Metz’s 4-0 defeat against AS Monaco in Ligue 1 this Saturday, Frédéric Antonetti was moved by the arbitration decisions of Johan Hamel. For the coach of the Garnets, two goals should not have been accepted.

“Before the match, I said:” With Mr. Hamel, be careful of the automatic penalty. I said that while laughing, but sometimes the humor is the truth. If there is penalty there, I have to change profession, otherw ise I do not understand anything about football. It is dramatic, because there is also the VAR “, lamented Frédéric Antonetti at a press conference. “Mr. Hamel has refereed us three times, we take four penalties (four times and five penalties in reality, editor’s note

) including two litigious “, he also noted.

“For me, it was over”

“Frankly, I ask myself questions, continued the Metz coach. Which ones? Every time there is an interpretation, it’s a penalty against us. On the third goal, the ball is out.”

“It had a lot of consequences on the match because afterwards, we gave up. I regret it. At 2-0, it was complicated, I planned on Tuesday’s match. For me, it was over.” , concluded Frédéric Antonetti who will find Niko Kovac’s ASM in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France (6:45 p.m. on April 6).
