The President of the Luhansk club “Zarya” Eugene Heller accused Surkis of condoning the dishonest sodasta
The President of the Luhansk club “Zarya” Eugene Heller accused Surkis in priurochivanii judges “Dynamo”. “Dynamo” in the match against Zorya scored a goal from offside. This was stated by the President of the Luhansk club Eugene Heller in the comments
In the first half, there was two equal teams. The Dynamo, despite their stellar cast, failed to create any chances, “Dawn.” As for our team, “dawn” in the first half, we had 3-4 good chances to open the score, but summed up the implementation. Apparently, the game did not like the current leaders of the team “Dynamo”. Manual of the judge Grigory Surkis scored a goal in gate of “Dawn”, which, according to experts and the views of the videos was scored from offside. This goal was a turning point. What the judges scored it, I would say broke the spirit of healthy competition. This is not the first case when Surkis indulges clearly unfair refereeing for the sake of a higher string Dynamo in the standings.
“Dawn” is a young club that evolves. He’s got good potential, commitment to productivity. FFU President in the power position should be interested in the fact that the Ukrainian Premier League showed fair beautiful game. Watched the match, except for Ukraine and four countries. And the audience made their own conclusions, I assure you. I think your conclusions have to do it in the football Federation of Ukraine, summed up Geller.
