Medellin President Makes Harsh Charges Against Deportivo Pasto

Match between Independiente Medellin and Deportivo Pasto ends in controversy, The disallowed goal was played against the local team and the side was awarded a penalty at the last minute, generating reactions from both sides. The president of the DIM, Daniel Osa, took the stage to complain about arbitration, but also made allegations against his rival.

According to Osa, in the canceled goalless game against Medellín, Deportivo Pasto had a non-playing action in which he simulated a foul against Edward López, “We voiced a protest before arbitration. It is not possible. That VAR has called for the judge to cancel a valid goal where he takes half a length in a jump. and with edward lopez who was our partner and the medical staff lend themselves to do all these things to bandage his head“, Said.

In that play, DIM defender, John Palacios, is the one who jumps on level ground with Pasto winger, Edward López and beats him with his elbow before the centre-back’s goal. Medical staff went in to see the assaulted man and bandaged his head,

Osa indicated that in addition to asking for fair play from his opponent, he hoped to improve refereeing in Colombian football. “We have to improve but do it from all points of view, us as leaders but also with the referees. When we win we do it so if we lose they won’t say we’re crybabies“, Said.

Finally, he hinted that the arbitration of that match was rigged, “Unfair rigging was going to happen today. The mediation by the guy (Eder Vergara) who I will not name is very bad. He doesn’t deserve to be whistled again at Atanasio or any stadium. The goalkeeper wasted time, the foul he did on us, Deportivo Pasto should have at least two red cards and I use this place for that. We would have run the risk of disaster, meddling also leads to violence. We are not doing anything to improve refereeing.”

Deportivo Independiente Medellin won 1–0 with a shot from the penalty spot taken by Edwin Setre in the last minute of the game.

Deportivo Pasto also opposes arbitration

Deportivo Pasto goalkeeper, Diego Martínez protested the referee, specifically the penalty that Eder Vergara whistled for Deportivo Independiente Medellin on one of the last plays of the game.

“It’s a play they put in the middle of the field, I run it down and we both go for the ball, we both go for the ball and then the ball hits me in the face. I do a normal bailout. , my legs are extended, but the ball hits him, me and then my face,” Martinez said.

and added, “Look at the environment we were in. We are not going to blame anyone, but the local people always favor a bigger team the moment we are fighting to qualify, so what happened today is very unfair to me.”,
