Last night, the South Korean referee Jin Xikun blew off Luneng's goal, which caused controversy and dissatisfaction among Luneng players. In this regard, "Yangcheng Evening News" reporter Lin Benjian believes that the VAR referee Ma Ning of this game is not suitable for the Shanghai Derby tonight.
Lin Benjian wrote: "After the controversy of the Battle of Beijing and Luzhou last night, Ma Ning is not suitable for law enforcement in the Shanghai Derby tonight, whether it is the chief referee or the video assistant referee. I believe all parties have felt the pressure brought by the battle of Beijing and Lu , This may also have a significant impact on Ma Ning. The rumors between Ma Ning and related clubs will magnify this effect. With such a huge pressure on law enforcement, the possibility of mistakes in chaos is greater.
Earlier, some media reporters said that the Football Association has decided to deploy Ma Ning to enforce the second round of the Shanghai Derby. In the first round of the match between the two sides, SIPG and Shenhua shook hands 0-0. SIPG’s main goalkeeper Yan Junling was seriously injured and needed surgical treatment.
