Mateu Lahoz will be the referee in charge of directing the Classic of this Saturday in Valdebebas according to Raúl Varela in the program The tribe Radio Marca. The Referees Technical Committee changed his initial designation, which was that of the collegiate From Burgos Bengoetxea, as Eduardo García, director of the aforementioned station, had advanced last Tuesday. The referees denounce “external pressures” for the change of appointment and the final election of the Valencian referee, which will be assisted in the VAR by Soto Grado. May God distribute luck… and I’m right.
The history of this designation is typical of a movie in the Jason Bourne saga and worthy of a miniseries on Netflix. This Thursday the decision of the Technical Committee of Referees (CTA) will be officially known, but Radio MARCA revealed the intrahistory, which has its crumb, its pressures and its palace intrigues. It does not lack anything. The chosen one will finally be Mateu Lahoz, who tonight will whistle Bayern-PSG in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Last Tuesday during the program Marker of Radio Marca, Edu Garcia, director of the station, announced that the collegiate De Burgos Bengoetxea was going to be the referee of the Classical of this weekend between Real Madrid and Barcelona, with Munuera Montero as the second preferred option for the Committee.
“External pressures” on the Committee
But the news caused an earthquake in the Committee, which received calls of all kinds. In fact, according to Radio Marca, the referees believe that the final appointment of Mateu Lahoz is due to the fact that the Technical Committee of Referees has bowed to certain “External pressures”. So Real Madrid-Barcelona will be refereed by Mateu Lahoz, accompanied (and hopefully helped) in the VAR by Soto Grado.
Mateu Lahoz will direct the Champions match this week because this Wednesday he will be in charge of whistling the best match in Europe, Bayern-PSG. Only three days later he will face another match of the greats that the League can decide: the Classic of Valdebebas. Good luck. And a lot of view.
