The match between Aldosivi and Godoy Cruz at the Mar del Plata stadium did not end in the best way. There was a tense exchange of words between the Tiburon coach, Fernando Gago and the referee Néstor Pitana, minutes after the actions concluded.
There was anger and loud complaints from the DT and harsh responses from the judge.
The anger of the technical director of Aldosivi focused on the third visitor goal, which Ezequiel Bullaude signed in the 29th minute of the second half. At the time of receiving before giving the pass-goal, the forward was out of the game, something that the referee team did not notice.
Not satisfied, once the fight was over, Gago approached Pitana to talk about the action in question. And the awkward discussion occurred. The judge and his collaborators listened without much attention to the DT’s criticisms, even in the middle they greeted the Godoy Cruz players. When the former midfielder was about to withdraw, one of them was heard saying “4 to 1”. “How?” Asked the coach, surprised.
“We have listened to you enough,” said another member of the shortlist. “Make a mea culpa, self-criticism, too, you,” Pitana snapped. “Don’t disrespect me, don’t disrespect me,” Gago began to repeat, furious with the response he received from the former World Cup referee.
