The decisions of Matthew Lahoz in the defeat (1-0) against Getafe at Alfonso Perez Coliseum and the words “you owe me one”that the referee directed the striker of the azulón team Enes Unal at the break of this Saturday’s game, they have turned on Majorcanism.
The Balearic club considers unacceptable that Lahoz used those terms, collected by the Movistar cameras, in his dialogue with the Turkish footballer.

Lahoz did not appreciate the maximum foul at first and let the play continue; shortly after he signaled the penalty, showed Russo the second yellow card and left Mallorca with ten players in the 63rd minute.
“They are not excuses, but we clearly believe that the penalty was not. It is a decision that we do not understand. And then there is the expulsion of Russo, who was around. We also do not see why Russo has to see the first yellow card,” Alfonso said. Díaz, business CEO, to the microphones of the Balearic club.
