The referees wanted to shed some light on Tuesday on the management of the controversial play between Vinicius and Rulli that caused the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, to call the president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), Luis Rubiales, on the last day of Reyes after Real Madrid-Real Sociedad (0-2). In a session of balance of the use of the VAR during the first round of LaLiga, the chairman of the Technical Committee of Referees, Carlos Velasco Carballo, projected the images of what happened, with the audios of the dialogue between the referee of the meeting, Munuera Montero, and that of the VAR room, Melero López.
When the encounter between the Real Madrid Vinicius and the goalkeeper of Real, Rulli, the referee shouts: "Ball, ball, ball!". After that, from the room of Las Rozas, Melero Lopez says: "I want to see her, I want to see her, I want to see her, please, do not resume", while Munuera Montero reaffirms: "Balon". In the room several shots of the play are reviewed, until Melero López concludes that it was not a penalty: "Nothing, nothing, we throw forwards", he says and gives the referee free rein: "José Luis, todo OK". And the match continues.
