Coach Alfred Gislason, after the defeat of his THW Kiel, has expressed an unusually harsh criticism of the referees in the third place of the Handball Champions League.
In his opinion, the German champion was both in the semi-finals against MVM Veszprem (27:31) and in the third place against Vive Tauron Kielce. disadvantaged.” It is strange how much whistling is done on one side and with which on the other,”said the Icelander in Cologne.
His team has received more time penalties than the counterparts, Gislason said and grumbled,”This is a joke. It seems to me that the organization of the track works completely separately.”
Kiel had lost the game by place three with 26:28 (12:12) against Kielce. Gamemaker Domagoj Duvnjak saw red in the 40th minute after three time sentences. The Kielers received eleven two-minute sentences in both games.
