Manuel Vizcaino is not satisfied with the VAR decisions

Cadiz President Manuel Vizcaino Fernandez has published an open letter to the Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales. He is angry at the refereeing decisions that have recently gone against Cadiz, for example, feeling that his side should have had a penalty in their 4-1 loss to Real Sociedad. “Fix the VAR problem, fix it now,” his open letter began. “You can brag about changing the image of the RFEF and protecting the best league in the world. But it is your responsibility to sort this out. Cadiz is not interested in the media, giving us another five or seven points for VAR mistakes. We are interested in getting what we deserve. And it is unacceptable for technology always seems to reach some conclusion that goes against our interests.”

The VAR issue should be fixed for the benefit of football

“We can’t speak, we can’t comment, and we cannot raise our voice, or we will be punished and we cannot remove the team from the field because we will be punished. We cannot challenge the referee because he is outside the limits. So we can remain silent only in the face of the injustice that we suffer day after day because of the VAR errors. One day it says one thing, the next day it’s the opposite. There are no criteria, and nothing is clear. President, fix the VAR issue for the benefit of football, for the benefit of the RFEF and for the benefit of all. We have never commented on the referees. However, after 20 years in this field, I no longer know what to say to the coach, players or fans about our respectful silence.”

“There are comments against it from many, but the only one sanctioned for speaking out was our coach Alvaro Cervera. Today I can no longer remain silent. There are many things on the line. I am not a president who gets carried away, and we are a serious club. Now do your part.”
