Tiger Fight, October 20. After the referee controversial and penalties occurred in the second stage of the Chinese Super League last weekend, Xinhua News Agency published a signed article commenting on the referee's penalties of the Chinese Super League, bluntly saying that referees should not be allowed to "play the lead" in the second stage.
The full text is as follows:
A world-class whistle once said that the best referee is to make fans and players not feel his presence. However, in the first round of the first round of the championship group focus of the 2020 Super League, there was still a controversy over the penalty and the referee became the "protagonist."
On the 17th, in the match between Shandong Luneng and Beijing Zhonghe Guoan, the referee’s two penalties involving Guoan’s goals caused controversy. Luneng was therefore equalized with a 2:0 lead. After the match, Luneng submitted a submission to the Chinese Football Association. Appeal letter.
Luneng believes that the two penalties are wrong: the first is a penalty, and the Luneng player did not foul in the process of defending the Guoan player Bakambu, reminding the referee to watch the video playback failed; the second is Bakambu. When scoring the second goal, Luneng player Kadar signaled that the opponent had a foul before shooting and reminded the referee to watch the video replay, but the referee insisted that the penalty is valid.
, First of all, Bacambu and Luneng goalkeeper Wang Dalei are both to fight for the ball. Wang Dalei first touches the ball than Bacambu and no foul action. Secondly, in response to the Luneng defender’s foul against Bacambu, the expert said that the guard’s responsibility It is defense. The opponent's striker is not allowed to get the ball and needs to be stuck in the position, and Bakambu has jumped up and passed through the gap of the defender. The contact between the Luneng defender and Bakambu is a reasonable action and there is no foul. He also gave a detail: when the Luneng defender contacted Bakanbu, the referee did not blow his whistle. Bakanbu jumped over and hit Wang Dalei and fell to the ground before buzzing.
Regarding the controversy over the penalty, Luneng hopes that the issue of referees can arouse the attention of the Chinese Football Association to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of such incidents in the future to ensure fairness and fairness of the game. National Security recommends that the Chinese Football Association and the Disarmament Committee can urge referees to strengthen their professional learning and make progress. Business ability, don't let the referee become the protagonist of the game, and influence the progress and development of the game.
"The scale is not uniform, and the referee can't make a judgment. It is a very reasonable body contact to blow a penalty, but it is not daring to blow it for obvious fouls. FIFA allows slight physical contact in the penalty area to compete for the ball. This It is part of a football game. If this action is judged as a foul, then players will not dare to make actions in the penalty area." He said, "FIFA has been emphasizing football understanding (understanding the laws of football) since last year. We must Penalties are made under the general framework of FIFA rules, and there is no set of rules of the Super League itself, and no foul action recognized by FIFA. The Super League considers a non-foul action. The non-foul action recognized by FIFA is considered a foul by the Super League. It is impossible to explain in front of the public. Furthermore, VAR intervention has very clear premises, that is, there are four cases of goal, penalty, red card and penalty subject error, and the intervention must be involved. The same action, Zhang San was sentenced in this match. It is strange that Li Si does not judge the next game and does not cause controversy. FIFA emphasizes the uniformity of the rules and the consistency of the standards. This is very important." He also believes that the above problems should be caused by the referee's authority to the rules. , The understanding of the scale has been biased.
In the focus of previous seasons, the Chinese Football Association invited foreign referees to enforce the law. However, in the context of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, foreign referees are more difficult to enter, which also makes local referees, especially young referees, more opportunities for refereeing this season, including the focus of the battle between Beijing and Lu. This is a double-edged sword that can both experience them and expose their problems. However, referee experts do not support requesting external referees for the first reason that it is necessary to train local referees; second, the cost of requesting external referees is relatively high; third, external referees cannot solve all problems and there have been disputes. He said that in the 2018 and 2019 seasons, the Chinese Football Association has invited foreign referees many times, which has reduced the opportunities for local referees to experience. In this year's empty field and there are few spectators in the field, there will be disputes over the penalty. If there is pressure from tens of thousands of spectators in each field Next, there may be even greater controversy. He also suggested that the referees should seek truth from facts, and they should not make a mistake and justify themselves. Then there will be more problems.
It is also in the context of the epidemic that the special second-stage knockout system prevents the two strong teams from Jinglu and Lu, who met in the first round, from reaching the semi-finals. Based on this, the competent authority should be more cautious when selecting referees and should pay more attention to professionalism. And practicality.
In the "China Football Reform and Development Overall Plan" issued in 2015, it was mentioned that "strengthening industry management. Improving the restraint mechanism of referees' fair enforcement, coaches and athletes abiding by the law"; "strengthening the training of football professionals. According to classification and classification The principle of management is to build a multi-level and diversified training organization structure for countries, regions, industries, professional institutions, and social forces, and strengthen the training of professional talents such as football coaches, referees, and lecturers." The Chinese Football Association has made many efforts in the training of professionals including referees in recent years. The number of referees at all levels has steadily increased. There are currently 7 international-level referees, which are among the top in Asia in number. , FIFA communication has strengthened the communication of refereeing, and to a certain extent improved the level of refereeing.
在2015年发布的《中国足球改革发展总体规划》中，提到“加强行业管理，完善裁判公平执法，教练员和运动员遵守法律的约束机制”； “加强足球专业人才的培养。按分类和分类管理的原则是为国家，地区，行业，专业机构和社会力量建立多层次，多元化的培训组织架构，加强专业人才的培养。例如足球教练，裁判和讲师。”近年来，中国足球协会在训练包括裁判员在内的专业人员方面做出了许多努力。各级裁判员人数稳步增长。目前有7位国际水平的裁判，在亚洲排名前茅。 ，FIFA交流加强了裁判的交流，并在一定程度上提高了裁判水平。
However, we should also see that the controversial issue of penalties reflected in the Chinese Super League is still prominent, which shows that the professional level of local referees still needs to be improved, and the understanding and grasp of relevant FIFA rules is still lacking. The referee training system should also pay more attention. Systematic, forward-looking and professional.
Of course, no one is perfect, and while criticizing in good faith, we must also give local referees room for growth.
