Former FIFA referee Sukhina supported Meshkov’s decision not to send off Sako during the RPL match “Zenit” – “Rostov”

Former FIFA referee Stanislav Sukhina explained why the chief referee of the match of the 30th round of the RPL “Zenith “-“Rostov » Vitali Meshkov did not show a red card to the visiting defender Umaru Sako for handball in an episode with penalty.

Zenit defeated Rostov on Saturday in the 30th match of the MIR Russian Premier League (RPL) with a score of 2-1 and won the Russian championship for the sixth time in a row. The St. Petersburg team scored the first goal from the penalty spot, awarded for handball by Sako. Meshkov showed the footballer a yellow card.

— If we look at the situation, Glebov is behind Sako. It is impossible to say one hundred percent that due to handball the ball goes directly into the goal. For such a match, Meshkov made the optimal decision both in the spirit of football and in the rules of the game,” Sukhina said in the program “The Rules of the Game” on the MATCH PREMIER channel.

“Zenith” won the tenth victory at the Russian championship, and the “blue-white-blue” also won gold at the 1984 USSR championship.
