‘Cannot accept’ - Iraola launches into rant criticising Newcastle penalty decision

For me it is very difficult to accept the result. I cannot accept the first goal they scored, the penalty decision. He (Schar) is in an offside position. I have been talking to the referees after the game. I am not smart enough to understand their explanations. I think if we are only talking about the foul, it is a very soft, soft foul for a set piece, because in set pieces and corners everyone grabs, goes to the floor and they do not call anything all season. But if they call a foul, we will complain, but we have to accept it.
