Liverpool requested the Professional Match Officials’ Organization (PGMOL) to release VAR audio regarding the misjudgment against Tottenham.
On the 3rd (Korean time), global media ‘BBC’ reported, “Liverpool requested audio from the referees in the game against Tottenham on Saturday from the Professional Game Officials of England (PGMOL).”
Liverpool lost 1-2 against Tottenham Hotspur in the 7th round of the 2023/24 season Premier League (PL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 1st (Korean time).
On this day, Liverpool’s Cudith Jones received a red card in the 26th minute of the first half, and Diogo Jota was sent off for accumulating yellow cards in the 24th minute of the second half. Due to numerical inferiority, Liverpool lost after conceding a goal in extra time in the second half.
Liverpool suffered a mistrial in the 34th minute of the first half. Luis Dias received Salah’s pass after penetrating in front of the goal and hit the Tottenham net with a clean shot, but the assistant referee declared offside.레고토토
The problem was that the scene in question was not offside. Even video review (VAR) failed to overturn the offside. The score was canceled as is. If this goal had been recognized, I don’t know how the game would have played out.
The Professional Football Ombudsman (PGMOL) acknowledged the mistrial. “PGMOL acknowledges that a serious human error occurred in the first half of the match between Tottenham and Liverpool,” the referees’ committee said in an official statement.
PGMOL said: “Luis Diaz’s goal was declared offside by the match officials. This was a clear and obvious error. “The goal should have been awarded due to VAR intervention, but it wasn’t,” he explained.
He added: “PGMOL will conduct a full review of the circumstances that led to the error.”
Liverpool have no intention of ignoring the misjudgment. According to the BBC, Liverpool requested PGMOL to release the audio exchanged between referees during the Tottenham match. There were questions about what kind of communication was made in that situation.
Meanwhile, Liverpool said, “PGMOL has admitted its mistake. It is clear that the integrity of the sport has been compromised because the laws of the game have not been applied correctly. We cannot accept that the mistake has been classified as ‘serious human error’. “All results must be reviewed and established with full transparency,” the statement said.
