‘I have absolute respect for referees’: Maradona apologizes for ‘unacceptable’ comments

06 Juillet, 2018, 08:52 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • American referee Mark Geiger was heavily criticised by both Colombia captain Falcao and Argentina great Maradona

Team England is not under any pressure of being obliged to reach the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation and is doing its work advancing to next rounds of the world championship, England's defender Kieran Trippier told TASS. "It's very clear to me, Geiger, an American, how curious that he was the one who invented a penalty for Brazil [in a 1-1 friendly draw against Colombia in 2012], that Nigeria accused him at Federation Internationale de Football Association".

Diego Maradona is reported to be paid $10,000 per each game he attends from Federation Internationale de Football Association as part of its "Legends" ambassador programme, surely Federation Internationale de Football Association hold themselves up to ridicule if they continue doing that, paying a cheat who has no respect for the truth or the current players, managers and match officials.

Maradona's original comments occurred on Wednesday, after the England-Colombia match was decided on penalty kicks and marred by yellow cards and fouls.

"Following comments made by Diego Armando Maradona in relation to Tuesday's round of 16 game, Colombia v England, Fifa strongly rebukes the criticism of the performance of the match officials which it considers to have been positive in a tough and highly emotional match".

"It also considers the additional comments and insinuations made as being entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded".

England had opened the scoring with a penalty after Carlos Sanchez was penalised for obstructing Harry Kane in the box, although replays appeared to show the Three Lions captain pulling Sanchez down to his midriff to initiate the move.

Addressing groping allegations, PM ’confident’ he did nothing inappropriate
The Prime Minister has made feminism an important piece of his political brand since coming to office nearly three years ago. Trudeau's father, Pierre, served as PM between 1968-1979 and 1980-1984, and he died in September 2000.

Speaking to teleSUR, he said: "I saw a monumental theft on the pitch".

He penned: "Taken by the thrill of cheering for Colombia the other day, I said a few things and, I admit, some of them are unacceptable". I apologize to the Colombian people, but the players are not to blame as we don't choose the referees.

In the end, Kane scored his penalty before Yerry Mina grabbed a last-gasp equaliser for Colombia in stoppage time.

Maradona, who captained Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, said he was surprised Geiger had been chosen for the match.

"I found it peculiar that they put an American referee in this instance", the striker said, per the Guardian. "To tell you the truth, the process leaves a lot of doubts".
