Liverpool to receive VAR audio from Tottenham defeat as PGMOL make final decision over making it public

Liverpool to receive VAR audio from Tottenham defeat as PGMOL make final decision over making it public

They have received the audio.

Liverpool are set to receive the VAR audio of Luis Diaz's disallowed goal in the the Reds' 2-1 defeat to Tottenham, it has been claimed.

The PGMOL are reportedly set to send the VAR audio of Diaz's goal to Liverpool, with the content set to be reviewed before being made public.

Indeed, should the audio be released to the public domain it is likely to be before PGMOL chief refereeing officer Howard Webb's appearance on Sky Sports' Webb’s Mic’d Up Show on Tuesday evening at 8pm.

The Independent's Miguel Delaney wrote on X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter: "PGMOL are giving the audio to Liverpool. It will be reviewed before it’s made public, but that will also happen - and may well be before Webb’s Mic’d Up Show."

On Monday Liverpool made a formal request to the PGMOL for the audio between match officials from Saturday’s defeat at Tottenham.

The move came after Diaz's opener was incorrectly disallowed for offside after a mix-up from VAR official Darren England, which the PGMOL have labelled as a "significant human error".

On Sunday, Liverpool vowed to "explore the range of options available" to them to reach a resolution.

They subsequently approached the PGMOL for the raw audio files of the conversations between England and his on-field team which led to the goal being chalked off.

England and his assistant Dan Cook had mistakenly believed Diaz's goal was initially allowed to stand. In turn they told on-field referee Simon Hooper their check was complete.

In a statement on Liverpool said: "Liverpool Football Club acknowledges PGMOL's admission of their failures last night. It is clear that the correct application of the laws of the game did not occur, resulting in sporting integrity being undermined.

"We fully accept the pressures that match officials work under but these pressures are supposed to be alleviated, not exacerbated, by the existence and implementation of VAR.

"It is therefore unsatisfactory that sufficient time was not afforded to allow the correct decision to be made and that there was no subsequent intervention.

"That such failings have already been categorised as 'significant human error' is also unacceptable. Any and all outcomes should be established only by the review and with full transparency.

"This is vital for the reliability of future decision making as it applies to all clubs with learnings being used to make improvements to processes in order to ensure this kind of situation cannot occur again.

"In the meantime, we will explore the range of options available, given the clear need for escalation and resolution."
