CD Leganes have decided to logged an appealed for their match against Levante to be replayed following the failure of video assistant referee.
Levante was awarded a first half penalty after Dimitris Siovas was adjudged to have fouled Roger Marti, but further replay showed that the incident occurred just outside the penalty area.
However, referee Munuera Montero was left in no man’s land after his communication equipment failed, forcing the fourth official to pass on the VAR decision via phone.
Leganes president Victoria Pavon said the club, will challenge the result of the game and would request the match be replayed .
“Very serious things have happened in this match – like calling a penalty against us that was a foul outside the area,” said Pavon.
“It also happened in the match against Valencia a few weeks ago, but in addition to that the VAR system was not working correctly so we feel we have not been able to compete in equal conditions.”
While Chidozie Awaziem played the entire duration of the game which ended 2-1 in the favor of the visitors, Kenneth Omeruo was not listed for the game due to injury.
Leganes are currently rocking the bottom of the La liga table with just two points from eight games.
