The Red and Golds team management will officially file a complaint with the AIFF and FSDL against referee A Rown after the FC Goa clash …
East Bengal will file a complaint with the Football Federation of India (AIFF) and Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) against referee Arumughan Rowan, objective You can confirm.
Rowan, who led the match between East Bengal and FC Goa on Wednesday night, made poor in-game decisions that changed the fate of the match, according to club management.
Skipper Daniel Fox was sent off in the 56th minute of the game after challenging Alexander Romario. The English defender was immediately given a red card and East Bengal believes the decision was tough for Fox as the red card could have been avoided.
The second decision challenged by the club is Bright Enobakhare’s disallowed goal. Surchandra Singh had sprinted into the area to score and pass Mohammed Nawaz, but the Gaurs goalkeeper stopped the effort. The ball bounced off Enobakhare, who found the back of the net, but was disallowed as Surchandra was penalized for a goalkeeper foul.
The Reds and Golds claim that Nawaz had collided with his teammate instead of Surchandra and therefore the question of a foul does not arise.
“After each match, the club can give official feedback on the referee. Along with that feedback, we also file a complaint with the AIFF and the FSDL about two important decisions that were questionable. These things need to be corrected because the team is affected a lot.” said an East Bengal official objective.
“The first is Bright’s second goal that was disallowed. The replays clearly suggest that Surchandra Singh didn’t touch Mohammed Nawaz and it was an FC Goa player that the goalkeeper hit. The second is Danny Fox’s red card because when he challenge happened, the referee initially got the yellow card but it was the assistant referee who suggested it was a straight red. We feel it wasn’t that hard, it was a 50-50 challenge and he got the ball. Bengal, with 11 players, would have been a different marker. “
This is the second time that the Kolkata giants have filed a complaint against a match official. In December they had complained about the standard of refereeing after the game against Jamshedpur, where Eugeneson Lyngdoh was sent off.
