The soccer world was divided by the decision to grant the penalty to Manchester's fine on Wednesday night.
Although the team of Pep Guardiola was very good for Shakhtar Donestk in the Champions League, soccer figures were polarized by the decision to grant a fake penalty to Raheem Sterling during the European defeat.
International England received a penalty after kicking the grass while under pressure from Shakhtar Mykola Matviyenko. Although there was no contact with the player, the referee immediately indicated the place to give the set-piece.
Sterling did not appeal to the penalty to be revoked, while Guardiola seemed to say to the official quarter that it was an incorrect decision.
However, the soccer world was divided by the incident – and here is a return to reaction to the penalty decision.
What the clubs said
Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Sterling responded to the penalty decision.
"I have been chip the ball and I do not know what happened next. It ended up on the floor and it turned," said Sterling.
"I do not think I felt contacted, it was only my evil. I called the ground and crushed the ground. Apologies to the ref and apologize to Shakhtar."
Guardiola reacted immediately to the penalty when reacting to the fourth official insisting that the decision was incorrect. The city manager also took the opportunity to say:
"It's not like that. VAR does not exist in Uefa, so it's the problem. It was making a chip, it fell but the referee could make a mistake. But the referee must be helped, for technology.
"It's not good to score the second goal and win that way. Last season we passed against Liverpool, so the referees should be helped."
The manager of Shakhtar, Fonesca, played the incident and insisted that the decision did not reveal a difference in the result of the meeting.
There is no point in saying anything about that sanction after such a result, "Fonseca said Football 2.
"We lose because the city is a team at another level, much, much better than us.
"We were far from trying to do anything [to win]. My team did not show up well. They did not show courage and that disappointed me most of all.
"You can grant six goals, but it is even worse if you fear your opponents.
"Our biggest problem was fear, lack of courage. That is why we do not try to build our game as we want to do.
"We still have the chance to benefit. We need to win our two remaining games and expect adequate results in other games. And we have to try to do that. But it will be very difficult to achieve."
A view of an arbitrator
Former Premier League player Mark Clattenburg said the referee made the decision and revealed that the penalty might have been even if Sterling had protested.
"It was an incredible sporting event when Raheem Sterling told Viktor Kassai that he was wrong to give them a penalty to Manchester City," Clattenburg wrote. Daily mail ..
"Even so, it might not have been enough to persuade the Hungarian official to change his mind. The referees can void their own decisions until the moment they reset.
"He had Sterling claiming that it was not a penalty, Kassai could buy time and consult with his assistants.
"But if the referee was still sure that he had made the right call, he could continue with his original decision."

"I think city players should have just said:" Listen, it's not a penalty, "he said.
"The worst arbitration decision," he said.
"That reaction (from Sterling) is brilliant.
"How many references do they need to have that right?"
In fact no
Sterling should be ashamed of a trick

Apparently it's a dive
I can make a better dip than #Interling with my shoe without releasing!

It's not your problem
Raheem Sterling could tell the ref that he launched himself? Or they could have missed the purpose. #ManCityShakhtar

Raheem Sterling does not deserve all the grief of the media in general, but really did not help himself last night – shows a fundamental lack of integrity.

Looking at that incident, I do not think Sterling took an immersion, but had the perfect chance to do the sport. Yes, it was a ridiculous decision, but you need to do more things from players & # 39; lack of honesty in these situations.

Even the United fanatics have divided it
Why does Raheem Sterling blame it? It's not the fault that the referee is inept. Should Ashley Young be more and tell the referee that it should have been a penalty after committing Aguero in the derby last season? Obviously no. This is not different.

Should Willy Boly tell him the ref that he has seen on the net in the month of August?
Or is it just cheating when it's Sterling / City? pic.twitter.com/ZKLuWUs8dW

I can not wait until a ref takes another horrible decision elsewhere so that everyone abuses the defender / striker that the referee makes a mistake in favor of … oh hope it will not happen because no other player is called Raheem Sterling

It's not your problem
Blame the useless officer of goalside, the referee and the online player. Three officials could not see that among them, his task was not Sterling to arbitrate the game.
