A truly staggering error by such a experienced referee , surely at least one other official should have seen it and alerted Kassai

I will be surprised if he gets another CL appointment this season

If I had made a decision like that Id definitely want one of my colleagues to inform me. Why does this not happen ?

The official behind the goal almost certainly would know its a horrendous decision and at least one of the ARs very likely would too. Why hang your colleague out to dry ?

I reckon he has blown that quickly and pointed he hasnt given anyone the opportunity to change his decision.
very few assistants would question it at the time perhaps, although you would think the non officizls behind the goal could have told him

Still its beyond belief he gave it without waiting a second or two for verbal advice

Agree. Embarrassing decision. Victor Kassai was not in the best of positions directly behind and in line with Sterling. I cannot believe he didnt get some input from the AAR (Bognar?). On the BT coverage it showed the AAR (who had an unobstructed view) making a gesture looking as if he was supporting the penalty!

I like him as a ref but that is one of the worst decisions I've ever seen at top level unfortunately

Be surprised if he gets another European game at all!
Utterly embarrassing!

A staggering decision to give the penalty, but he "evened it up" (words of the Optus Sport commentators, not mine) by not giving a penalty in the second half for the foul on Sterling.

You just don't expect those decisions from Kassai.
David Silva ol.

Why didn't Sterling 'own up'?

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

We will remember them.  Laurence Binyon

Of course it would have been to his credit if he had, but I must have missed the debate after last season's Manchester Derby criticising Ashley Young for not going up to Martin Atkinson and saying "Hey ref that was a red card challenge I made on Aguero in the penalty area, you need to send me off and award a penalty to City".

What has happened to Kassai?

For a time, he was one of the best referees in Europe but he's been in decline for so long now. It's quite unusual for a career to peak so early.

It's a bit sad.

Just seen the supposed second penalty on the highlights. Sterling was as culpable as his opponent in that incident.

I must have mssed the debate after the previous season's Manchester Derby criticising Claudio Bravo for not going up to the referee and saying "Hey ref that was a red card challenge I made on Rooney in the penalty area, you need to send me off and award a penalty to United."
