Penny spoke to Code Fútbol and related what happened in the last minutes of the game, where Ortega showed her the red card. “He disrespects the players, the mother mentions the players. Thank God there is the image where all superb winks at me, where he tells me: I’m going to expel you c … ”, he pointed out.

Penny’s complaint was similar to that made by Marcio Valverde in the duel in which Alianza Lima lost the category at the end of 2020. The now former Sport Huancayo player pointed out: He insulted me on the field and when I scored the goal, you can see in the repetition, he runs after me and tells me: let’s see me celebrate and that he was going to expel me and my mother would tell me. That’s why I came running to tell the Commissioner. These arbitrations cannot be possible and he is a FIFA referee, he should be ashamed ”, he said.

For his part, Ortega defended himself against Penny’s accusations. “I come to speak not as the referee, but as a person. All the statements that Diego Penny has come out to express, I totally deny them all. To put the situation about the play in context a bit, mainly that he alleges that I have insulted him, I have disrespected him and it was a situation that I never listen to because I am far away, “he said.
