João Patrício Hermann questioned the decision of referee Raphael Claus to expel Rodinei, stated that Colorado was ‘stolen’ and also detonated Rodolfo Landim; watch
Vice President of International, João Patrício Hermann detonated the arbitration of Raphael Claus on 2-1 defeat by Flamengo, last Sunday, 21, at Maracanã stadium, in a match valid for the penultimate round of the Brazilian championship. At a press conference, the official stated that the judge did not maintain the criterion of other similar decisions in the bid in which he expelled the right back Rodinei, when the game was tied. In addition, the agent complained of Rodolfo Landim, president of Rubro-Negro carioca, who would have guaranteed seats closer to the field for visitors from Rio Grande do Sul.
“Whoever was at the stadium today saw one of the biggest shame in recent times. Internacional was stolen. The referee changed the criteria he had been adopting for the last four or five games. It is a shame the referee’s performance. The Flamengo players told our players… I will name them: Filipe Luís told our player that it was not a foul for a red card. At most, yellow because it was not intentional. We are going to CBF to complain and listen to the VAR, just as we are going to be more attentive. We had a very big signal in the game against Vasco da Gama. The club president drew the public’s attention and, again, we were harmed absurdly. Our team was warrior and courageous. And the desperation to see the Flamengo leaders practically invading the field. The desperation of Flamengo’s coaching staff, manager and players in going to disrupt the VAR is a shame. Flamengo is big and doesn’t need that kind of attitude. Not to mention, they put more than 60 people behind the bank, putting us in the back. President Landim lied to me about the place where we would stay. So, this is the environment. Flamengo may even try to be champion, but it will be very difficult. The championship is not over yet, ”he said.
With the result, Flamengo jumped to the leadership of the Brazilian Championship, depending only on themselves to win the title in the final round, against the São Paulo, in Morumbi. Inter, for their part, will have to cheer for Rubro-Negro to stumble and win against Corinthians, in Beira-Rio. Both games are scheduled for Thursday, 25.
