Damir Skomina was once again a guest on Monday’s Pod překo and offered his thoughts on the most controversial refereeing decisions in the 14th round of the Slovenian Championship. His comments on the match Olimpija – Aluminij, we have already written, and it is very interesting to note that Božo Kondić was also hit by Skomina.
Last weekend, a referee from Ljubljana administered justice in the Celje – Domžale match, and according to Damir Skomina, Božo Kondić twice injured the visitors. Skomina was adjudged to have scored a controversial penalty for Celje, and he is also convinced that the home team’s third goal was scored from a disallowed position.
“For me, this is not a punitive blow at all. There is nothing an actor can do but put himself in the position he is in. The footage is not the best, I allow for the possibility that the ball directly hit the player’s hand, then it’s a penalty kick and a second caution because it’s a goal kick. But I am inclined to think that the ball hit the footballer in the thigh first and the danger is over there. The player can no longer influence where the ball bounces,“, said Damir Skomina, who retired from judging in 2021, in the Pod prečko show on Sportklub.
The retired referee from Koper added about the third goal: “Normally in VAR we have two lines, when it’s tight the lines overlap and here they obviously relied too much on technology and gave the attacker the advantage. This is because when the lines overlap, the attacker is favoured. What is disturbing is that no part of the Domžale defender’s body is over the line, but it is clear that Popović’s head is over the line, and a disallowed position should have been awarded and the goal should have been annulled.”
