Referee Dennis Higler is satisfied with the decisions that he took in the match between FC Groningen and Ajax (0-1) on Saturday. The arbitrator had a major role in three important moments in the match, including a possible handsbal of Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico in the penalty area.
Higler, the opening goal of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar despite protests from Groningen players that claimed the Ajax striker transgressed on Groningen defender Tim Craftsman.
“I think it’s a valid goal,” said Higler against FOX Sports. “They come in a physical duel. Huntelaar hammer out of that duel, it comes loose and makes a goal.”
