After Antoine Griezmann's 'ghost' goal scandal against Espanyol Barcelona. The Catalan club is almost doomed to relegation two days from the end after their draw against Atlético de Madrid on Wednesday (3-3). This meeting was upset by a goal awarded to Frenchman Antoine Griezmann after an intervention by the VAR, confirming that the ball crossed the line. In the absence of goal-line technology, it is difficult to award the goal in view of the images.
Former Spanish referee Iturralde Gonzalez returned to the microphone of Cadena Ser on the dispute by explaining why the Spanish championship does not have the goal-line: "The license of the goal-line is granted by FIFA, this technology costs three and a half million euros. Tebas and LaLiga do not want to give this money to FIFA”.
He continued: “It is true that González González (in charge of VAR) should not have corrected Melero López (the central referee) because he could not know if the ball could have entered, and that is a refereeing error, which the referees must accept, he believes. But Espanyol should also make a declaration saying that it wants the goal-line. For the next season, the goal-line should not land in La Liga.
