Calcutta: United SC coach Eelco Schattorie made his displeasure clear about the referee’s decision to disallow a goal during injury time on Wednesday. It helped Mohammedan Sporting prevail 3-2 in the Calcutta Football League match at the Salt Lake Stadium.
“I don’t control the referee… I can’t change his decision… Our last goal wasn’t from an off-side position… Two Mohammedan Sporting goals seemed to be from off-side positions,” Eelco said.
“I’ve told the referee to go home and watch the match again… He should then call and tell me if that was off-side… I would have been more angry if this was an I-League match,” said the United SC coach.
The Dutch didn’t seem too bothered about the outcome. “At halftime I was very angry… Two of my defenders were playing like children. But it’s a learning process… We outplayed them in the second session… This was not my first team… Yet we managed to trouble them.”
Mohammed Sporting coach Abdul Aziz Moshood didn’t agree that his team is finding the going tough in the second half. “These kind of days will come… Today just wasn’t our day… But it’s okay.”
