At 15 minutes of the final stage, Vinicius Zanocelo hit Gustavo Mantuan, from Corinthians, in the face. The foul has been marked. But, after being called by VAR, Marcelo de Lima Henrique evaluated the bid and decided to expel the player from Santos.

– Zanocelo has a bump with Piton, hits the face. For me, it’s an avoidance move. Then he has the arm action, but for me it’s not aggression. I would not expel. It’s kind of a protective move, but I don’t see it as an elbow or an assault. I would only show yellow and I don’t think it’s a move for VAR to interfere – commented PC.

– On the playing field, game reading. When there is aggression, an elbow strike, there is a strong reaction from the teammates of the athlete who was possibly attacked. The video referee fails to read the game. It is a decision to be made in the field. VAR in Brazil is very interventionist,” he added.
