Prague – Referee Tomáš Klíma, according to the Referee Commission of the Football Association of the Czech Republic, wrongly sent off the Slavist stopper Aiham Ousou in Sunday’s fifth round of the first league on the field of the newcomer from Brno, based on the intervention of the video referee. The other two situations from the weekend matches, on the other hand, were judged correctly by the referees.

Ousou received a yellow card for shoving the substitute Musa Alli, but after the intervention of the video referee (VAR) and watching replays, referee Klíma changed the original verdict and the match ended prematurely for the visiting defender in the 57th minute. According to the minutes of the match, Klíma sent Ousou off for thwarting an obvious scoring opportunity.

Slavia coach Jindřich Trpišovský declared after the match that he had never seen a red card for a similar action. The people of Prague led by three goals at the time of the suspension and, despite being weakened, won 4:0.

“Although the offending player was the last defender and the attacking player would have advanced alone on the goalkeeper, but given that the attacker was close to the goal line and would have been coming at the goalkeeper from a disadvantageous angle, a yellow card for disrupting a promising action would have been sufficient punishment in this case From the point of view of assessment, this is a difficult situation for the referee and VAR,” said the referees’ commission in communique.

Spartan stopper Asger Sörensen, on the other hand, in Saturday’s little Prague derby with Bohemias 1905 (1:1), correctly received only a yellow card from the referee Pavel Orl for pulling the escaping “Klangaros” striker David Puskáč by the shorts in the 29th minute at Letná.

“Although the fouling player was the last defender at the time, the offense occurred close to the boundary line and it was likely that the attacking player would have to undergo another fight with the defender, who was further from the goal line than the attacker at the time, but had a better advantage position in the middle of the playing area,” the commission explained, adding that it was also a difficult situation for the referee and VAR from the point of view of assessment.

The commission also upheld the main referee Marko Radin, who in the first half of the match between Slovácko and Liberec on Sunday sent off the home team’s Vlastimil Daníček for a foul on the escaping Jan Matoušek. In this case, it was a waste of an obvious scoring opportunity. Slovan won 2:1 in Uherské Hradiště with a numerical advantage.

“Although the defender’s offense took place in his own half of the playing area, the attacking player clearly advanced alone on the goalkeeper, the other defending players could hardly prevent him due to their position. From the point of view of assessment, this is a clear situation for the referee,” said the commission referees.
