Sport: It is Bergens Tidende who writes on Friday about the situation that has arisen in connection with this year’s Norwegian championship on the men’s side in Norwegian football.

YMCA player Adnan Hadzic played the 3rd round match against Sogndal and ended up being decisive when he scored in the penalty shootout. At the same time, Hadzic had a yellow card from both the first and second round, and should thus have been placed in the stands.

In the next round, YMCA knocked out Lysekloster, and it is the western club that is now reacting to the Hadzic episode. The club claims that it could have had another opponent in the 4th round if things had gone right.

Lysekloster claims they are considering protest.

– We will look into it. Just think if they (YMCA) win the whole cup. Then something is really jarring, says trainer Ruben Hetlevik to BT.

The regulations allow for a protest to be lodged in cases where ineligible players have been used, but this must be done within 48 hours of the end of the match.

In addition to the fact that the deadline has expired, according to the Norwegian Football Association, Sogndal could have protested in this case. Lysekloster is not considered to be a party to the case. Sogndal does not wish to file a protest.

At the same time, the NFF has asked the YMCA for an explanation. After this has been received, consideration will be given to opening a sanction case.
