Benfica talk about 9 points lost thanks to gross mistakes by referees and VAR. So far, no complaints have been filed against the club, the vice-president and the coach who criticized the bad decision of a team of referees which could cost Benfica millions. Millions and the start of the next season.
But referees Manuel Oliveira and André Narciso achieved a feat unprecedented in sports newspapers. They managed to get all ex-referees to follow Benfica’s criticism. It’s not difficult because one newspaper is from FC Porto, another from Sporting and the other from NIN. It’s neither no nor yes.
