The journalists of the TV channel filmed how the striker of the football club John Cordoba spoke negatively about the work of the referees at the match with CSKA. Then they handed over this video to the control and disciplinary committee of the Russian Football Union.

The incident occurred during a half-time break during a match with CSKA. The player returned to the locker room. In Spanish, he emotionally commented on the work of the referee at the match. At the same time, the player did not use obscene words. He did not know that he was being filmed at that moment, said the general director of the club, Vladimir Khashig.

"Match TV employees filmed this on the sly, from a corner, at a time when our footballer did not see them", - Vladimir Khashig said , adding that the footballer, in fact, had reason to speak out on emotions, given that the referee " missed" a few violations.

Then the journalists translated the recording from Spanish and handed it over to the RFU Control and Disciplinary Committee. The committee decided to suspend the player for two games.

Vladimir Khashig condemned the actions of journalists, saying that the club would no longer work with this TV channel.

"We consider this to be denunciation and, as a club, we stop all contacts with Match TV, except for those stipulated by the contract", - the club's general director added.

Recall that on August 10, FC Krasnodar lost to CSKA with a score of 1:4.
