What a scandal that has arisen in recent days in Major League Soccer due to the issue of betting. The Colombian player from Sporting Kansas City, Felipe Hernandez, was suspended from the competition for being addicted to gambling in the competition. After this, Phil Neville asks that the MLS referees be investigated as well.
After this topic, the technical director of the Inter Miami has called for a ‘massive’ investigation into the whistlers. The coach exploded because his team has been harmed by refereeing decision issues so far in the tournament.
“I don’t want to sound like a broken record but something is fundamentally wrong with the way that the referees they treat Inter Miami. We play in one of the best leagues in the world and I have had a lot of experience, but in the end I have a locker room that asks very legitimate questions about the integrity of this league in terms of the decisions that we receive, “Neville said.
“… something is fundamentally wrong with the way the referees treat Inter Miami.”

And is that last Saturday Inter fell by the slightest difference in their visit to Red Bull New York, a defeat that became the fifth in a row. It should be noted that in the last minute, forward Gonzalo Higuaín scored the tying goal, which was annulled by the VAR due to an offside.
This situation has generated discontent and doubt in the 44-year-old helmsman, who in a press conference declared that it is not the first time that something similar has happened against his team: “It is not only the last four games, also it was at the beginning of the season“.
This is how the issue of illegal gambling in the MLS has caused alarms to go off in the competition. Investigations are expected to continue to find out if there are more players or officials involved in these mismanagements. On 90min we will continue to inform.
