The Moscow football club said that the chief referee Kirill Levnikov, who judged his game with Lokomotiv, violated the disciplinary code.

Thus, the head of Lokomotiv Stanislav Sukhina violated the rules of the Tinkoff Russian Premier League (RPL), as he entered the referee’s room at a time when the referee and other officials of the match were there.

In this regard, “Spartak” appealed to the Control and Disciplinary Committee of the Russian Football Union (FTC RFU), said the head of the “red-white” public relations department Anton Fetisov.

“The chief referee of the match, Kirill Levnikov, and other officials did not take any action aimed at preventing the appearance of Stanislav Sukhina in the referee’s room,” RIA Novosti writes on April 12.

In this regard, the club asked the RFU FTC to investigate the incident, as well as to consider the issue of qualifying the actions of the chief referee and, if necessary, apply disciplinary measures to him, Fetisov emphasized.

A video recording of the moment when Sukhina appears in the referee’s room was posted on Twitter by Spartak.

In addition, after the game, “Spartak” turned to the RFU expert-referee commission with a request to evaluate three episodes of the match, in which, according to the team, it was necessary to assign a penalty to Lokomotiv’s goal.

The match of the 25th round of Tinkoff of the Russian Premier League between Lokomotiv and Spartak took place on April 11. The railroad workers won with a score of 2: 0.

Goals were scored by strikers Francois Camano and Fedor Smolov.
