When you have Victor Gomes in the middle, you must be ready for a thriller,” Mosimane said after the game.“What I like about him, is what he thinks… he doesn’t hesitate. He’s strong in his mind. When he thinks it’s a penalty, he gives it.
Victor Gomes found himself to be most popular than players for the night, when he awarded some controversial penalties. In two games, he awarded 8 penatlies.
“Well done to him. I congratulated him at halftime. I said, ‘what I like about you, no matter whether you’re wrong or right, you’ve got guts’. He doesn’t care, he’s a young referee, he has a lot of energy, if he thinks it’s a penalty, he gives.”
Mosimane said.“The safer you play, the less controversial you are, the less time you are under public scrutiny. I think other referees should learn from him. I’m not saying they were all penalties, but he’s the kind of referee who does what he believes is right and that’s what I like.”
