Peter Vermes blasts MLS referee again following LAFC 4-0 SKC


Sporting Kansas City manager Peter Vermes has again hit out MLS refereeing in the wake of his side’s 4-0 thrashing against LAFC.

For the second time in three games, SKC were on the receiving end of a red card with Roger Espinoza getting his marching orders in the 58th minute for grabbing Cristian Arango’s shirt and stepping on his ankle. A VAR review deemed this an intentional act, thus worthy of a dismissal.

This comes just a couple of weeks after Remi Walter was sent off for bringing down Emmanuel Reynoso during SKC’s 0-0 draw with rivals Minnesota United. The challenge looked high, though Walter also appeared to be trying to back out.

Vermes accused referee Marcos de Oliveira of showing a “lack of respect” toward his players in a passionate post-match press conference.

Drew Fischer was the man in the middle on Friday and this time, Vermes accused him of showing a red card based on his pre-conceived judgement of Espinoza, adamant the stamp on Arango’s leg was accidental.
