Ronald Koeman has rid and finally will not be sanctioned after his criticisms to the referee and to the VAR​ after the Classical against the Real Madrid. The Dutch loaded against the videoarbitraje after the defeat in front of the whites and days afterwards the Committee of Competition decided to open him a file. This movement could have finish with a hard sanction, but at the end will not be like this.

'The Chain BE' has advanced that the instructor that has studied the case has decided that there is not a punishment for the one of Zaandam. According to the Disciplinary code of the Real Spanish Federation of Football, the trainer of the Barça could have been sanctioned with between 4 and 12 parties of suspension by words "by means of which question the honesty and impartiality of any member of the referee's community or of the organs of the RFEF".

The statements of the technician culé after the fiasco in front of the Madrid were the following: "For you it is penalti? Ok, for me is not it, have said him to the referee. I have said him that ojalá some day can explain me how works the VAR in Spain. We carry five days and the VAR only has gone in against of the Barça. Never in favour. Neither in the penalti to Messi in Seville, neither in the two red in Getafe. I have asked after him what only there is VAR against the Barça".

Although the article of the Disciplinary Code had similarities with what said Koeman after the Classical, finally has decided that they are not sufficient reason as to punish him. The ex seleccionador of Holland, therefore, has rid and will go out only with a warning after the file that opened him the Committee. It can that for the next time have something more than care with his words to avoid more frights.

Koeman No arrepintió of his controversial statements

It is necessary to remember that days after receiving this warning of Competition, the míster barcelonista left clear in press conference that no arrepentía of his words against the VAR. "No me arrepiento of at all of what said. It is not in my hands. I do not want to speak more on this subject and at all more", said, in his day. In spite of not helping with these statements, the judge of the case has not seen that his words were so important as they estimated in the Committee..
