The supportersfederatie of Zulte Waregem is tired. After the supporters last weekend on the field of STVV multiple bad stages saw play out in their disadvantage, they wrote an open letter to the directors of the Belgian football. “Apologize to mr. Verbist (scheidsrechtersbaas, ed.) here will do little to change. Here need to be addressed”, what it sounds like.
Very Zulte Waregem was furious after the 2-1 defeat at STVV. The fans saw in Limburg, the 0-2 of Hamdi Harbaoui is rejected after the VAR procedure. An alleged elleboogfout provided Harbaoui also a yellow card. In the second half hold the same Harbaoui in with a tackle. To everyone’s surprise, he received a second yellow card. In the first half had Essevee even though a penalty for an error on Bongonda.

For the supportersfederatie is enough. In an open letter, text and explanation, with a list of the bad decisions that Essevee already a lot of points would have cost.
“We ask after arbitration errors and blunders with the urge to the policy makers of the Belgian football to intervene. We ask that those who are in the wrong, at least the appropriate sanction, if one wants to have any credibility retained”, what it sounds like. “Only then can we once again believe in the neutrality and the credibility of the arbitration respect.”
“That we, as a team, last one standing, we would accept that we were really not better. But as the arbitration of the errors and decisions of the VAR, our players always K. O. store, then there is more to the story. Apologies to mr. scheidsrechtersbaas Verbist will do little to change. Here need to be addressed”, what it sounds like.
Read here the open letter “to the directors of our Belgian football”:
In recent weeks, the Belgian football several times in a less elegant way in the picture. Illegal practices on and around the field, did our image no good. That referees were involved, was also for us as a supporter, a big disappointment. The credibility of the arbitration this was seriously in danger, but nevertheless gave the majority of the supporters of the scheidsrechterskorps still the benefit of the doubt, and we kept them that were not involved in support.
Since yesterday we have this vision as Zulte Waregem supporters, however, clear Polish, because with horror, we have to establish that neutrality today is indeed staggering.
We wanted the arbitral errors of the past weeks at home against Anderlecht and Charleroi are still off as coincidence, even though we had this also in other competitions this season, already experienced, then we can the mistakes that the referee and the VAR yesterday on Sint Truiden made not just next to us put down. This was, after all, far over. Witness also the confirmation in the various media.
Apologies to Mr. Verbist will be here today, little to change. How can you possibly continue to defend? Here need to be addressed.
As a small familieclub that through hard work and strong cohesion has grown into a club in the G6, with a transparent policy and beautiful annual draw, we, the supporters, today proverbial to sound the alarm. As the main stakeholder in the Belgian football, namely the fans, we need to re-establish that with our feet is played.
Our board will, of course, be silenced with penalties and fines, but we want to this problem, as supporters, openly to denounce it.
Our players knokten the past few weeks together with us through a very difficult period but we have to conclude that football in Belgium today is not fair to expire. That we, as a team, last one standing, we would accept if we really can’t get better, but as the arbitration of the errors and decisions of the VAR, our players telkermale KO save at moments that we are clearly speloverwicht, even several times to score, then there is more to the story.
We hope not, we ask that this time pressure on the decision makers of the Belgian soccer to intervene, and for those who go wrong at the least appropriate sanction to apply if one wants to have any credibility retained.
Only then can we once again believe in the neutrality and the credibility of the arbitration respect.
