Federation agrees with Schmidt on penalty that prevented PSV from winning



Técnico was very critical of the referee and gave up a quick interview twice. The penalty prevented PSV from winning, who are four points behind leaders Ajax

In the fight for the league title, PSV did not go beyond a 2-2 draw at Feyenoord. Last Sunday’s game ended in controversy, with Roger Schmidt complaining about the penalty that made it 2-2 in the 95th minute, apparently with good reason, according to the country’s federation.

“Our opinion is that it shouldn’t have been a punishment and VAR should have intervened,” a KNVB spokesperson said.

Even after the final whistle, with calmer spirits, Roger Schmidt spared no criticism from the referee.

“There are six referees in modern football, and they are not able to make the right decision in the 94th minute of such a decisive game. It’s unbelievable. We had the incredible decision for the second goal of Ajax, and now this first and Ajax second Of course I know errors are normal, but if you don’t go and see the footage, since VAR is completely wrong, it doesn’t know what is handball or not… I can’t understand,” he said as he left the venue for quick talks twice.

With this equality, PSV enter the last two rounds four points behind leaders Ajax, who had drawn a few hours earlier against AZ Alkmaar.
