Twitter reacts to Giovani Lo Celso avoiding a retrospective ban

Tottenham Hotspur caught a lucky break as Giovani Lo Celso will not face any retrospective action for his tackle on Cesar Azpilicueta in the 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge. (h/t Football.London)

The Spurs midfielder appeared to step on the Chelsea skipper’s leg. The decision was deferred to VAR who pronounced the 24-year-old not guilty. It was later admitted by the PGMLO that the original decision was a mistake and the Argentinian should have been sent off.

However, the Tottenham midfielder will not face any retrospective action for the challenge.

Mourinho Lo Celso

Giovani Lo Celso was pardoned by VAR

As per PGMOL rules, retrospective disciplinary action is reserved for only those incidents “not captured by the match officials or VAR”.

Here, however, the incident was seen by the on-field officials and checked by VAR. Therefore, it does not fall into the area where retrospective action can be taken despite their later admission that they had got it wrong.

The news will come as a relief to Tottenham who are struggling in attack. With Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane out injured, Jose Mourinho is short of attacking options. The Argentine’s loss would have further depleted the Spurs arsenal with he club very much in the race for the fourth spot.

We take a look below at some of the reactions to Lo Celso’s lucky break.
