“I respect all clubs and all presidents. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, we live in a democratic society. My work is to train arbitrators and appoint the best for the matches. I will develop the refereeing. If any club is not happy with the refereeing, I can understand that sometimes judges admit mistakes. But with VAR, the number of errors is reduced. And in the future we will reduce the amount of time spent on the replay,” said Kassai.
After the match with “Zenit” Leonid Fedun focused on several controversial episodes in the opponent’s penalty area, for which “Spartak” could claim a penalty.
Kassai previously commented on the controversial episodes of the match “Zenit” — “Spartak”.
