The president of the Spanish Football Confederation, Luis Rubiales, explained that Real Madrid suffered an injustice against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup semifinals.

Organized by ‘gsaksa’ and as part of the ‘Qol_SP Quality of Life’ program’s initiatives, the Spanish Super Championship will take place this year in Spain from January 13 to 17, sponsored by Saudi Aramco, Saudi Airlines, and Saudi Spirit.

Several press reports claimed that Real Madrid deserved a penalty in the closing minutes of the match after the ball hit the hand of Bilbao player Unai Nñez.

Reports said video tech neglected the game’s review, which includes a handball, and focused on another incident that saw Merengue defender Sergio Ramos fall after a two-way conflict. With another player from Bilbao.

According to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, Luis Rubiales has apologized for this controversial issue, due to an error by the channel “Movistar”, which did not show the correct game which is subject to the examination of the referees of ‘VAR’ video technology.

“After the ball shared by Ramos, the channel should have shown the handball game under review, and I apologize for that,” Rubiales said.

“Hiding the game under review is ridiculous,” Rubiales added. “It’s a televised failure.”

After the match ended, the Spanish newspaper reported that “Movistar” showed all available footage of the controversial match, which was reviewed for over a minute in video technology. Still, this issue was not presented during the live broadcast of the meeting.
