“No, I haven’t experienced that yet,” smiles assistant coach Andris Olderinck after the match.
It is not Mark van Bommel, T1 in Antwerp, who is addressing the press in a short interview. No, this is prohibited if you get a red card in the match. Thus, Felice Mazo does not appear in front of the microphone of the rights holder Eleven.
Another thing the coaches have in common: dissatisfaction with the decisions made by referee Wesley De Cremer.
Mazo saw Charleroi at a disadvantage when a foul on Ilimaharitra was not penalized for a 2-2 lead. His colleague went to get a story a few minutes later. The same result was waiting for him.
“Look, at a certain point everything gets hectic,” Olderinck remains calm. “Everyone was constantly rushing to the bench to challenge decisions.”
So T2 in Antwerp can also understand the referees, who tried to control more tightly. “Everyone has their own personality. I prefer to remain calm at a moment like this.”
Jelly Bataille saw the scenes unfold before him. “If you want the fans to go absolutely crazy at that moment, you should definitely do something like that,” he responds sarcastically.
Although the defender also knows that red cards did not decide the match. “We owe this defeat to ourselves,” Bataille concludes firmly. “I still don’t know what went wrong with the first goal, for example.”
No red card can address The Great Old’s goals.
