Diego Lugano: “He helped Argentina become world champion”

Diego Lugano, a historical defender from Uruguay, said in a radio interview with “Futebol por carve” that he “helped Argentina become world champions” and pointed out that, although Albiceleste had “merit”, “out of five penalties” he had. Gave, did not go four”.

The Lionel Messi-led selection took penalties against Saudi Arabia, Poland, the Netherlands, Croatia and France in the final. All were converted by the captain, except for one which was saved by Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny at the end of the group stage.

“He helped Argentina become world champion. There is no doubt that he helped him,” said the Uruguayan reference. And he explained his theory: “He will have his merits, but 4 of the 5 penalties he gave, no one has any doubt that they were completely unforced. That’s a reality. But hey, it’s Messi.” There is also a quality that goes a long way around the world. Do you think that FIFA does not see it and does not serve it? It is also a quality of Argentina that they knew how to take advantage of it.

Lugano escalated his criticism of the technology and FIFA’s application. “Since VAR was introduced, the judge has been given immense power to interpret any time he wants. There can be 20 penalties or none in a game and I think football is chaos. I Said to bald Pierluigi Collina (former referee and UEFA member) in the World Cup, also with some bitch for what he did to us. It happens in Argentina too. Haven’t you seen the penalty from Boca to the river ? Even in Brazil …”.

“I think what FIFA did with VAR is purely political agitation, to show that I don’t know who is transparent. Penalties and you win a game. It’s a big mistake by FIFA. Players Has no opinion but leaders who never play football,” he attacked.

“I am concerned that players do not step forward to voice their opinion. Can’t be that a classic or a game is defined by such stupidity. A championship defines the future of a player or a coach. VAR brings more doubt to football than justice. This forces the judge to intervene in silly, unimportant plays. They don’t understand what contact is. We are not going to talk about the World Cup in Qatar because it is a shame”, the Uruguayan closed.
