The unanimous opinion of the Slovenian public is: Aluminij was wronged in the 0:0 away draw at Stožice. But was it? Yes and no. The final verdict was announced on Monday’s Pod Pod crossko on Sportklub
the best Slovenian referee of all time , Damir Skomina, made it clear: Aluminij should have been awarded an penalty, but the goal, which was awarded by the Olimpija was correctly overturned.
“This is a very atypical situation. The Olimpija defender is very clever. He has his arms by his side as he draws his opponent to him. If he had his hand out as usual, there would have been no doubt. We don’t see this situation very often, but for me it is an offence. The attacker has possession, the defender knows what he is doing very well. He is not interested in the ball, he pulls it. Everything is clear enough for an offence to be whistled,“, commented Damir Skomina on the fall of the visiting player Filip Kosi in the Ljubljana penalty area.
PrimorČAN continued on the show “Under the crossbar”.We need to know that the situation is not easy. I always decide when I look twice and then stick to it. If you watch it repeatedly, you fall into a tunnel where you no longer know what is right and what is wrong. I’m trying to put myself on the field. As I said, if I had my arm outstretched, it would have been very clear, but in the end, the damage is done to the attacker. For me, this is a punishing blow.”
Skomina: “A clear enough offence”
And the goal scored by Sandro JovanoviĆ? VAR was called and referee Alen Borošak overruled it because of a foul by Žan Baskera on Justas Lasickas. But many were convinced that no offence had actually been committed. Damir Skomina disagrees.
“For me, everything is clear here. You know who’s on the ball. The Aluminija player had no intention of playing the ball. It is intended to interrupt a dangerous action, and for me that is a clear enough offence. Since this led to a goal, it is right that VAR was called,“, the Koprčan player stressed that Borošak was right to overturn the goal scored by the visitors from Kidričevo.
