Mumbrú demands the “highest level of professionalism” from the referees

Bilbao, May 12 (EFE) .- Alex Mumbrú, RETAbet Bilbao Basket coach, asked the referees “the highest level of professionalism”, after lamenting the technique for ‘flopping’ (simulation) whistled Jaylon Brown in the third quarter which he considered “one of the keys” in the defeat suffered by his team against Herbalife Gran Canaria.

“Losing by 20 points is difficult to say, but it has been one of the keys. As long as we are in the ACB and we are fighting, I would like to have the highest level of professionalism. It has become a technique for ‘flopping’ that has not been at any time, “he lamented.

“After having made a great effort in the third quarter to get to nine points and with the ball we have been punished too harshly and there the team has given up,” admitted Mumbrú.

The coach congratulated his players for the effort made after being confined for ten days by a covid outbreak.

“They have given everything and some have asked me for a change because we were at the limit especially Miniotas and Kulboka who have made the effort to play training one day. They have given their maximum and at the end in the third quarter we were 15 and it was difficult to return , although we have tried “, concluded.
