The Disciplinary Committee of the Georgian Football Federation assembled to discuss the accidents that occurred at the last round of the national championship and to take a decision on offensive statement made by the chief coach of the FC Dynamo Tbilisi, Alex Garcia.
Garcia said the first goal followed the `astonishing` penalty kick. The coaches are training sportsmen to play against the rivals not against the referees. I though I was dealing with serious people. What the side referee made today, it is the mockery of footballers and nothing else. If the problem is that the coach of the club is a foreigner, they should tell me and I will go home. Let the footballers play and do their business seriously,` chief coach said.
For these words the club was fined and the coach was warned for his offensive comments.
