Demis Nikolaidis commented on Willian Arao’s suspension in Panathinaikos’ match against Lamia.
We are all here, we are all Stoiximan
So he explained that he understands why the referee was fooled by the drama that took place and emphasized that there should be a committee to examine the phase in order to punish the player Lamias and to allow the Arao to play in the next match.
In detail what he said:
“I excuse the referee for the second yellow card. Although he raises his leg and collects it to avoid hitting the opponent, he falls down and catches his face. He makes plays on the point, mocks and misleads the referee. As the phase happened quickly, the referee thinks he found him in the face, so he shows the second yellow card.
The referee sees a player lift the leg and the opponent goes down. So he tells you “he found him”, so I excuse him. Normally there should be a committee and look into the phase. I would punish the Lamia player and take back Arao’s game day.
There needs to be a video, for a Super League committee to watch and punish the one who makes the play, not the one who collected his leg. I excuse the referee for the decision he made».
