Monzul provoked a scandal: Shakhtar's UPL match turned into a refereeing circus. Video

"Shakhtar" Donetsk defeated "Veres" Rivne in the match of the 17th round of the Ukrainian Premier League. Coach Marino Pušić's men were stronger on the pitch of the NSC Olimpiyskiy thanks to accurate strikes by midfielder Dmytro Kryskiv and forward Oleksandr Zubkov - 2-0.

At the same time, the main and most scandalous episode of the game occurred in the 49th minute of the match. After a shot from the left flank into the "Veres" penalty area, the ball fell into the feet of the same Zubkov, who decided to take a touch, but hit the opposing defender Yevhen Shevchenko.

The referee of the match, Kateryna Monzul, saw a handball on the part of the "Veres" player and awarded a penalty. However, the replay clearly shows that the ball hit Shevchenko in the fifth spot. Surprisingly, the video assistance system (VAS), which was monitored by Vitalii Romanov, confirmed the Kharkiv team's decision.

But the miracles in the work of the referees did not end there. Shot from the "point" Zubkov's shot was saved by the Veres goalkeeper, but Shakhtar forward Danylo Sikan made the save. However, the referees decided that the Ukrainian had run into the penalty area before the shot, and the goal was canceled.
