Following the controversy in the English Premier League matchday, 27 between Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has come out to speak on the controversy in the game.
“My View is not Important” Jose Mourinho
The manager refused to offer a definite comment on the Video Assistant Referee VAR decision that saw Josh Maja’s goal disallowed. The game would have ended 1-1, but VAR disallowed the Nigerian goal.
According to Jose Mourinho, he said his view is not important. He also said he does not make decisions and so he cannot say anything about it. In conclusion, he said it would only be wise to respect the views of the officials. Sometimes goals for, sometimes goals against. His view is not important, he said.
Tosin Adarabioyo directed Dele Alli’s ball into his net in the first 20 minutes of the game. Fulham made most of the chance with Letus-check firing wide. The goal finally came for the home team but was disallowed after the VAR check.
It was controversy as the player Mario Lemina’s’sLemina’s’s hand was well glued to his body, yet the referee and VAR still disallowed the goal. This the second time something like this is happening in one week; Manchester United was denied a penalty in Chelseas’ game when Hodson Odoi handled the ball in the penalty box.
