Pröpper sees images of Ajax-goal: “And that was clearly visible? Well, okay…”

Heracles Almelo captain Robin Pröpper had quite a few questions when he appeared in front of the ESPN microphone after the match against Ajax. The VAR approved Ajax‘ 0-1 after lengthy deliberations, but Pröpper believed that there was an offence and a violation.

The central defender spoke of a ‘somewhat dubious goal‘. Before Davy Klaassen pulled the trigger, Pröpper’s teammate Tim Breukers got the hand of Dusan Tadic in his face. Yes… I don‘t know if you can use your arms? , said the Heracles captain while viewing the images. It’s been reviewed. I think it‘s a violation, but okay.
The VAR also needed a few minutes to see if there was indeed an offside: after laying the lines they concluded in Zeist that this was not the case. And that was clearly visible? Well, okay… , says Pröpper, who had nothing but resigned in the 0-2 defeat. Let’
s not talk about that anymore, let‘s talk about the game. I think we failed to score and make Ajax really hard. But I do think we played an excellent game and it’s really a shame that we didn‘t make it anymore.

Heracles captain Robin Pröpper cannot agree with the decision of the arbitration at the 0-1 of Ajax. I think it’s a violation, but okay. #heraja pic.twitter.com/qButeImkzy
