Nearly every big match in the 2017/18 Superliga, so far, was marked with complaints of players and coaches on the referee’s calls. And no matter how some referee’s mistakes are obvious, it is hard for them to make most of them without the help of the video challenge system, which is not yet implemented in one of the strongest national championships in the world such as Brazilian.

The latest example came from Lebes/Canoas vs. Sesc-RJ game, in which referee failed to see the block touch of Sesc player. The replay showed it occurred. Further development led to the red card for Canoas player and, ultimately, to the controversial win of Sesc. Canoas fans expressed their opinion, by shouting „Thieves, thieves“ to both referees.

Re: @Sorin Acela
I hope that the Superliga will include the challenge system in next season. I feel that almost every Superliga match I watch has at least one controversial call, especially with ball in/out.

Kim Yeon-Koung for WoV - "I still didn't make any decisions for next season"

The major problems why there have not been more great / talented Asians who played great and to their potentials in European leagues are language barriers and cultural differences. Asians are thought to conform, not to be aggressive, be nice, do not complain if possible, etc. Also there is still racial overtone against Asians in European leagues. Reply
