The head coach of the Dutch “Vitesse” Leonid Slutsky criticized the refereeing of German referee Daniel Siebert in the second leg of the third qualifying round of the Europa League against Swiss “Basel”. His words are quoted Fcupdate.nl.
“The match result is associated with the error of the judge. Mad at the wrong decision. The referee saw everything, and I don’t understand why he showed a red card. His decision led to the departure of “Vitesse” from the European Cup,” said Slutsky.
According to the coach, he was pleased with the play of his team. “The Europa League is a serious tournament, it was an important match for us. The confrontation with Basel was difficult. Nevertheless, we had many chances in the first meeting. And not broken today, being in the minority,” he added.
16 Aug “Vitesse” lost to “Basel” with the score 1:0 and flew out of the Europa League. With 26 minutes on the team Slutsky played in the minority after the removal of defender Jake Clarke-Salter.
