We contest because he didn’t give Rafinha the penalty. Rafinha was shamefully pushed into the area. Whether he was participating in the bid or not doesn’t mean anything. Neither VAR had. strange to me very strange“, added Felipão, who intends to have an internal conversation, but also with the CBF about the referee from Minas Gerais.



I intend to manage together with the direction, with a conversation between us, players and also with the CBF. Because if any conduct was wrong on our part, we also have to look at what the referee did today. We have to be careful, yes, have to analyze, have balance. But we also have to talk to the people who are running Brazilian football. It’s hard“, completed.
