The Sporting president pointed to the batteries in an attempt between Pedro Gonçalves and Wendell, which, according to him, should have led to the dismissal of the white-and-blue player. Varandas also noted that “in the last five games [contra o FC Porto]”Sporting has six expulsions”, rulings that can be seen in the table on the side and which, in most cases, show the correctness of the decisions, according to the Jugo Court Ex Referees Committee.
It should be noted that two of these (Balinha and Tabata) appeared as a result of disrespect between the players after the final whistle of the derby. Among these offers, the only one that did not obtain a unanimous opinion from the panel of former referees was Coates’ first booking last season, which contributed to his subsequent dismissal. Even Boro’s recent red card, which was not analyzed by the court, was indisputable, as the Spain international attempted to avoid a goal, using his hands.
