Mike Dean, the video referee of the electric London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham (2-2) on the 2nd day of Championshipadmitted to the English newspaper The Daily Mail making a mistake on Tottenham’s late-game equalizer. The VAR official admits he should have called central referee Anthony Taylor to check whether or not Cristian Romero deserved a red card for pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair.
” For the few seconds I watched Romero pull Cucurella’s hair, I didn’t consider it a violent act.. On second thought, I should have asked Taylor to go to his control area to check for himselfconcedes Mike Dean. The referee on the field always has the last word. »
Thomas Tuchel responded to Mike Dean’s comments at a press conference, expressing surprise at the belated apologies presented by the referee on video. ” My concern is more about why it’s taking so longsaid the Blues coach, who received a suspended match and €41,000 in fines for his remarks against the referee. It won’t change things, unfortunately, but the decision is more than a bad decision. For such an obvious and clear mistake with such a huge consequence for the result of a match, it was very, very difficult to accept and understand. »
