The Brazilian Football Referee Association (ABRAFUT) released a statement this Sunday in defense of referees who were involved in complaints about their performance: the case of Raphael Claus, from the match between Fluminense and Atlético Mineiro, and Paulo Zanovelli, from game between Bragantino and Flamengo. In the text, ABRAFUT says that "in defense of its arbitrators, it states that it will file a notice of infraction with the STJD."

The notice of infraction is an instrument by which an interested party informs the STJD that someone committed an infraction provided for in the CBJD (Brazilian Code of Sports Justice). The investigation determines whether there was an infraction. To do this, it is possible to hear witnesses and carry out investigations.


In the case of the game between Fluminense and Atlético Mineiro, which ended in a 2-2 draw, defender Felipe Melo questioned the yellow card he received with the phrase "John Textor has reason". The move happened in the 42nd minute of the first half, when the defender fouled Otávio. Felipe Melo's complaint has to do with the accusations made by the owner of SAF do Botafogo, who has been in the news raising suspicions of match-fixing in Brazilian football.


In the case of the game between Bragantino and Flamengo, Bruno Spindel, red-black executive director, made accusations of fraud and theft of SporTV's microphones during this Saturday's match. The score ended in a 1-1 draw.

In the entity's note, it mentions that "last Saturday, after the match between Fluminense x Atlético Mineiro, after receiving a yellow card duly applied by referee Raphael Claus, dissatisfied , in a tone of complaint and accusation, the player Felipe Melo said: "John Textor is right". of results in Brazilian football."


The entity also condemned the statements made by Flamengo's director, Bruno Spindel, who "revolted against the performance of referee Paulo Zanovelli saying that Flamengo is being harmed and that the arbitration will favor the club that accuses it of theft, fraud, assault, putting pressure on the referees and thus guaranteeing a favorable result for its team." Finally, ABRAFUT states that it has seen "an increasingly unfair scenario against refereeing":

"Our referees are being used as a cloud of smoke to cover teams' responsibility for their players' mistakes. In order to place them as victims, they accuse and hold the arbitration responsible. However, they do not recognize that the failures of their players, as well as their behavior on the field and that of the teams' technical committee, play a fundamental and essential role in the smooth running of the game."

The entity further states that "it will be impossible to have quality football both for the members who work in this sport, as well as for the fans and spectators if all dissatisfaction is justified by unfair distrust, disbelief, suspicion and incredulity towards the refereeing work."
