Tottenham vs Liverpool: PGMOL ‘sorry’ for ‘human error’ as goal wrongly ruled out for offside | UK News

The governing body of English football’s referees has apologised to Liverpool after officials wrongly ruled out a goal in their 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) admitted a “significant human error” was made when a goal by Liverpool’s Luis Diaz was disallowed because of offside in the Premier League game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

At the time the score was 0-0, Tottenham went on to win 2-1 thanks to a Liverpool own goal in the dying seconds.

Match referee Simon Hooper, who sent off two Liverpool players, also ruled out Diaz’s 34th-minute effort.

The assistant’s offside flag was raised and a quick VAR check by Darren England at Stockley Park showed the Liverpool attacker was offside.

But still images of the incident appeared to show Tottenham defender Cristian Romero playing Diaz onside and Spurs took the lead two minutes later.

The referees’ body said in a statement: “PGMOL acknowledge a significant human error occurred during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool.

“The goal by Luis Diaz was disallowed for offside by the on-field team of match officials.

“This was a clear and obvious factual error and should have resulted in the goal being awarded through VAR intervention, however, the VAR failed to intervene.

“PGMOL will conduct a full review into the circumstances which led to the error”, and “will immediately be contacting Liverpool at the conclusion of the fixture to acknowledge the error.”

Cody Gakpo equalised before half-time, but Joel Matip’s last-gasp own-goal inflicted a first Premier League defeat of the season on Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, criticised the “unfair” and “crazy” decisions made by the officials.

He said: “That is not offside when you see it,” and dismissed the PGMOL apology, saying: “Who does that help? We won’t get points for it. We all thought that when VAR came in it would make things easier.

“The decision was made really quick for that decision. It changed the momentum of the game.”

Mauricio Pochettino: Chelsea set to appoint former Tottenham Hotspur boss as new head coach | UK News

Chelsea football club will appoint former Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino as their next head coach.

The 51-year-old will permanently succeed Graham Potter, who was dismissed at the start of April after less than seven months in charge of the club, Sky Sports News understands.

Frank Lampard’s role as caretaker manager will also come to an end at the end of this season.

Taking on the role, Mr Pochettino will have his work cut out.

Despite spending £600m in the last transfer windows, Chelsea are currently in the bottom half of the Premier League, and will end the season without a trophy.

The team will also not play in the European competition next season.

Paul Gilmour, Sky Sports reporter, said the choice of the Argentine was “surreal” but Mr Pochettino “knows how to bring a group of players together. He is very much a people person, somebody who can galvanise and work with what he has got”.

Mr Pochettino has been out of work since being sacked by Paris Saint-Germain last summer after 18 months in charge.

Before that, he managed Chelsea’s London rivals, Spurs, for five years until November 2019, but failed to win a trophy for the north London club.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville said the right choice has been made, given the profile of players that Chelsea have signed.

“They’ve got to appoint a manager who is going to inherit and like the squad that they’ve got – a lot of them are young – and I think that man is Mauricio Pochettino,” he said.

Tottenham players to reimburse fans after ‘wholly unacceptable’ performance in 6-1 defeat to Newcastle | UK News

Tottenham players have apologised and pledged to reimburse fans who travelled to watch Sunday’s 6-1 humiliation at Newcastle.

The North London team went 5-0 down in the opening 21 minutes on Sunday.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy described the team’s performance as “wholly unacceptable” and sacked interim head coach Cristian Stellini after less than a month in charge.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Spurs squad admitted the performance “wasn’t good enough” and vowed to “give everything to put things right”, before offering fans to help cover the cost of the tickets to the game.

They said: “As a squad, we understand your frustration, your anger. Sunday wasn’t good enough. We know words aren’t enough in situations like this but believe us, a defeat like this hurts.

“We appreciate your support, home and away, and with this in mind we would like to reimburse fans with the cost of their match tickets from St James’ Park.

“We know this does not change what happened on Sunday and we will give everything to put things right, starting against Manchester United on Thursday evening when, again, your support will mean everything to us. Together – and only together – can we move things forward.”

Former midfielder Ryan Mason, 31, has been placed in charge of the first team for the second time, having taken charge of the squad for the remainder of the 2020/21 season following the departure of Jose Mourinho in April 2021.

Tottenham are fifth, six points behind third-placed Newcastle and Manchester United in fourth, who have games in hand.

Stellini took responsibility for Sunday’s result, describing the first 25 minutes as the worst he had ever seen in football.

Captain Hugo Lloris immediately apologised to fans for the “embarrassing” defeat at St James’ Park during his post-match interview, acknowledging the team showed a “lack of pride”.

Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust subsequently called for decisive action to “give us all some hope and something to get behind at the end of a truly awful season”.

The trust also suggested fans “still deserve a refund” for Sunday’s disastrous display after the announcement dismissing Stellini, who was also part of Antonio Conte’s backroom staff.

“All supporters will now want to get behind Ryan in his attempt to rescue our season,” they added in a statement.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte leaves club by ‘mutual agreement’ | UK News

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by “mutual agreement”, the London side have said in a statement.

A decision was made after the Italian launched into an extraordinary post-match rant after his team’s 3-3 draw at Southampton last Saturday.

The 53-year-old, who had seen his side exit the FA Cup and Champions League in quick succession, watched his players concede twice in the final 13 minutes on the south coast to lose ground in their fight to stay in the top four.

After a fifth away match without a victory, Conte unleashed a furious tirade against his own “selfish players” and shut down uncertainty over his future as “excuses” for a squad who have failed to end the club’s trophy drought that dates back to 2008.

The Italian’s contract was set to expire in the summer and he had remained coy over the prospect of extending his stay in London all season, but fourth-placed Spurs have now cut their losses with the former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus boss after 16 months in charge.

Cristian Stellini, previously Conte’s assistant, will take charge of Tottenham’s final 10 matches of the season.

“We can announce that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual agreement,” a club statement read.

“We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio’s first season at the club. We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him well for the future.

“Cristian Stellini will take the team as acting head coach for the remainder of the season, along with Ryan Mason as assistant head coach.”

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy added: “We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place. We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our club and amazing, loyal supporters.”

Conte, who won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2017 and won Italy’s top flight four times, once with Inter Milan and three times with Juventus, was unable to end Tottenham’s 15-year wait for a trophy.

The north London club, who last won silverware when they lifted the league cup in 2008, qualified for the Champions League in Conte’s first season and are currently fourth in the table – meaning they will qualify again if they finish in their current position or higher.

However, the side are out of all cup competitions this season, so have no realistic chance of winning silverware.
