In the Chinese Super League yesterday, Beijing Zhonghe Guoan lost 0-1 to Shanghai SIPG. The referee Zhang Lei's multiple penalties caused controversy. Reporter Pan Chong said that the golden whistle should be the benchmark for Chinese referees, and the development of refereeing in Chinese football is also a key link.
Pan Chong said that the 2020 season is a difficult season. Due to the closure, the use of referees is actually stretched. There are only a limited number of referees in each competition zone, which increases their value and status infinitely. Therefore, referees The importance of this season is particularly prominent.
In addition to the controversy caused by Zhang Lei's penalty in this game, in the previous match between Wuhan and SIPG, Wuhan player Dong Xuesheng hit Fu Huan with a header in the penalty area, and Zhang Lei did not seem to see it either. In 2009, Zhang Lei was demoted to the second place because of a mistake in law enforcement.
Pan Chong said, should we reflect at this time and what is the role of the golden whistle? It should be the benchmark for Chinese referees and the highest level of Chinese football's penalties. If the Chinese Super League Golden Whistle blows three controversial penalties in a battle of Tianwangshan, should a question mark be drawn for the "Golden Whistle" award? Not only Wu Jingui said to Zhang Lei, "touching his conscience," even Wang Gang gave Zhang Lei a multi-meaning thumb after the game. The future of Chinese football has a long way to go. It is not only the requirements for the players, but the referee is also the most critical link.
