Yesterday, Komanda has published some of the best excuses Mircea had in his 2+ year in Donetsk (pitch, players, refs are always at fault - never the strengh of the opposition or poor tactics :rollani: ):
: (UPL) Shakhtar - Metalist - 0:1
I wouldnt want to get another ref like this ever. There was a lot of diving by the oposition today, but the ref was silent.
: (UPL) Zakarpattya - Shakhtar - 0:0
Its impossible to play on a potato field! And as for the refereeing... the ref added only 2 minutes in the second half and clearly did it intentionally.
: (Cup Final) Shakhtar - Dynamo - 0:1
If this was a Ukrainian ref, his career would've been over after this. I said it before and I say it now: appointing Terry Haugge (? spelling)
was a mistake.
What he forgot to mention was that it was him who wanted a foreign ref becuase he thought Ukrainians are all agianst Shakhta... Is there a name for a phobia of refs, btw?
: (Champions League) Celtic - Shakhtar - 1:0
I didnt want to come to the press-conference. It was my way of showing my disgust with the refereeing.
: (UPL) Shakhtar - Dynamo - 0:1
Kleber deserved a red card. Shevchuk didnt understand what I wanted from him. He doesnt fit our system.
: (UPL) Dnipro - Shakhtar - 2:2
I constantly repeat myself that the current football system in Ukrainian has no right to exist. Today the ref has shown 9 yellow cards. You cant do that.
: (UEFA Cup) Shakhtar - Lille
We should've left the pitch open to frost before the game. On a good pitch we would've created a lot more chances than on this swamp.
: (UPL) Metalurh D - Shakhtar
I had an impression that the refs were from Faroe Islands and were of the same level as those officiating Germany's third division at most.
: (Champions League) - Roma - Shakhtar - 4:0
I had to sub Gai due to his lack of concentration during the second and third goal. He will remember this game for all his life.
And thats by far not the complete list! The same remarks were after all failures. In fact there was a whole bunch of games that Shakhtar won and Lucescu was still targeting the refs, players (both his own and the oppositions) or the ground workers responsible for preparing the pitch!
He's been fined so many times for his words by the PFL that I doubt any other coach is even close to his anti-record!
Though, he's laughing at them too late at night - disrespecting everything and everyone in this country and paying out pennies for it while getting a $266,000 check every month...
Cant wait until they fire his ass off and deport as far away from this horrible land of poor pitches and unprofessional refs...
