Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski sympathises with Liverpool supporters over VAR row
In the aftermath of the contentious match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, winger Dejan Kulusevski has provided a measured perspective on the brewing controversy. The encounter, marked by a wrongly disallowed goal and subsequent calls for a replay, has ignited a fervent discussion among football enthusiasts.
The focal point of the uproar was the disallowed goal by Liverpool’s Luis Diaz in the first half of the fixture. It was an incident that could have tilted the game in Liverpool’s favour but remained marred by an incorrect offside call that VAR failed to rectify.
The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) eventually apologized for the error and released audio evidence, which revealed a communication breakdown between the on-field referee and VAR officials.
“It was just a mistake, and they were very angry that they got zero points even though they played a good game, and I understand them. [A replay] has probably never happened and I don’t think it will happen.”tottenham winger dejan kulusveski on var row via echo
Kulusevski, in response to Klopp’s call for a replay, commented that he believes it’s unlikely that such a decision will materialize. He recognizes that mistakes are an inherent part of the sport and can occur in any game, emphasizing the unpredictability of football.
No Replay, No Party?
The Swedish international’s measured response certainly reflects the ethos of sportsmanship and resilience that Tottenham embodies. While the controversy surrounding the match lingers, Kulusevski’s stance underscores the importance of moving forward and focusing on the next challenge.
As Tottenham look ahead to future fixtures in the Premier League, the team maintains its commitment to playing to the best of their abilities and approaching each match with determination.
Mistakes, after all, are a part of the game, and dwelling on them can hinder progress.
