The afternoon of the Saturday was marked by the controversy become in Anoeta, where the FC Barcelona lost two points of gold of unfair form. The referee of the party, Alberola Rojas, did not signal a clear penalti of Llorente to Gerard Hammered in the last minutes, and from the VAR neither warned him so that it reviewed the action, taking into account that minutes before yes had signalled a maximum penalty of Busquets to Llorente by the same action.

Well, the analysis of some ex international referees has not done expect, and are not few those who think that the crux of the matter is not in the decision of Alberola Rojas, but in Gil Manzano. The referee of the Committee Extremeño was the attendant of the VAR, and did not warn to the main referee. Surely because he considered that there was not at all, breaking like this with the criterion implanted by Alberola along the meeting.

"It verified the penalti by agarrón to Llorente, but instead by the same reason did not do it in the agarrón to Hammered"

"It does not see the agarrón because the body of the players covers him", says Iturralde González to defend to Alberola Rojas. "The VAR, once that have pitado the first penalti by agarrón, had to warn him that it has not seen it", continues the ex Spanish referee, blaming like this to the attendant of the VAR that it produced an injustice for the FC Barcelona in Donosti.

Barrenechea Montero, by his part, coincides in the analysis of Iturralde González and ensures that Alberola Rojas had a big performance in general lines during the Real Sociedad-Barça, that remained blurred "by the grave error of not sanctioning a clear penalti to Hammered in the minute 92. An error atribuible more to the VAR, by not taking part in a clear action", says the ex referee.

Gil Manzano was not fine in the VAR

"The face and the cross is in the VAR of Gil Manzano", continues Barrenechea. "It verified the penalti by agarrón to Llorente, but instead by the same reason did not do it in the agarrón to Hammered. In the has to, this penalti and also a hard entrance to Luis Suárez to the 67 minutes by part of Zubeldia that deserved yellow card", concludes on the referee's performance in the Real Sociedad-Barça.

It remains clear, then, that there is coincidence in that there was penalti on Gerard Hammered if it follows the criterion of pitar the first, committed by Busquets on Llorente. The case is that the disparity of criteria between Alberola Rojas -main referee- and Gil Manzano -attendant of the VAR- prevented that there was justice passed the ninety minutes, giving place to the controversy.
