Fans spot one damning line from VAR audio of Luis Diaz’s disallowed goal
| Last updated
Fans have spotted one damning part from PGMOL’s VAR audio of Luis Diaz’s disallowed goal.
On Saturday evening, 10-man Liverpool stunned Tottenham Hotspur in the 33rd minute after Diaz was put through by Mohamed Salah.
After scoring, Diaz’s celebration was halted by the linesman’s flag. VAR gave it the all clear but replays showed that Diaz was in fact onside.
After realising their mistake, the PGMOL released the audio from the incident on Tuesday evening.
However, fans have spotted one damning line from the video posted by the Premier League.
After the VAR check, the on-field referee, Simon Hooper was heard saying: “Well done boys, good process.”
Fans were quick to react on social media.
One said: “It's even worse than expected "Well done boys, good process.””
Another tweeted: ““Well done boys, good process” is sending me.”
A third fan added: “A good process of corruption.”
Someone else wrote: “From 'well done boys, good process', to 'oh (expletive)' in a matter of seconds.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “"well done boys good process" is the best meme of the year hands down.”
Another fan said: ““Well done boys, good process” Just shows how clueless the refs are in the Premier League.”
Along with the audio, the PGMOL said: “As stated shortly after the full-time whistle on Saturday evening, we acknowledged in a statement that a significant human error had occurred during the aforementioned match, which we recognise should have resulted in a goal being awarded through VAR intervention.
“As with all goal situations, the VAR team checked every aspect of the goal. After the on-field officials had disallowed the goal for offside, the checking phase and process started and was carried out correctly by the VAR. The kick-point selection was accurate and the use of a single 2D line on the foot of the second rear-most defender was also correctly positioned.”
