Fans unhappy with 'technical fault' which affected part of Europa Conference League final

Fans unhappy with 'technical fault' which affected part of Europa Conference League final

Fans were not happy when the technical fault occurred.

Fans were left unhappy by a 'technical fault' that affected parts of the Europa Conference League final coverage.

Olympiakos defeated Fiorentina 1-0 in extra time in Athens, becoming the first ever Greek team to win a major European trophy in the process - and in their home country no less.

Despite a relatively lacklustre 90 minutes from both sides in the final, forward Ayoub El Kaabi scored a 118th-minute winner to write himself into Greek football folklore.

Olympiakos manager Jose Luis Mendilibar also became a back-to-back winner in European competition, having lifted the Europa League as Sevilla boss last season.

But fans watching the game in the UK were put off by a technical issue that occurred during various stages of the final.

Adam Summerton and Lucy Ward were on commentary for the showpiece occasion in Athens for TNT Sports - but viewers noticed that their voices were not in sync with the live footage during some parts of the match.

Taking to social media, one fan wrote: "That ball went in the goal and was ruled out before the commentary caught up to it even being in the box."

Another said: "Had to turn it down... confused the life out of me."

A third agreed: "Yes same for me, extremely annoying."

A fourth joked: "Guy's screaming when the ball is already off the pitch."

Fortunately, the issue was identified and then fixed around 15 minutes into the final, with fans experiencing few issues for the remainder of the match.

TNT have confirmed there was a 'minor issue with syncing with the start of last night's match' which was resolved promptly.

Among Olympiakos' roster, meanwhile, is the former Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic - who was also playing against his former club in Athens.

The 34-year-old, who played 28 minutes of the final, told TNT Sports after the victory: "Amazing. For Olympiakos and me. Really proud of my guys. We did great all year and deserved.

"I have to compliment Fiorentina, two years in a row [getting to the final and losing]. A shame for them."
