Lewis Dunk Gives Brutal Interview After Lee Mason Controversially Disallowed His Goal Against West Brom

Lewis Dunk Gives Brutal Interview After Lee Mason Controversially Disallowed His Goal Against West Brom

An angry Lewis Dunk gave a brutal and angry interview after Lee Mason controversially disallowed his goal against West Brom this afternoon.

The Brighton skipper took a quick free-kick that beat Sam Johnstone as he was setting up his wall.

But there was mass confusion as Mason, the man in the middle, had blown his whistle twice and the ball hadn't crossed the line in the second instance.

At first, he ruled the goal out and then, after a VAR delay, allowed the strike to count before changing the decision and ultimately ordering the set-piece to be taken again.

The controversial call caused an eruption of criticism on social media but no-one was more fuming than Dunk, who thought he had scored a legitimate equaliser.

West Brom Goal Controversially Disallowed By VAR Offside Check

After the game, the 29-year-old slammed Mason for his decision in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

"It is embarrassing, a horrendous decision, he blew his whistle and I took it," Dunk said.

"Just because he's got so much pressure on the bench and the players, he disallows the goal. VAR doesn't know what he's said.

"Why doesn't he come and speak to the press like me? Why doesn't he come and say his point? Never. They hide behind their bubble.

"I don't think he knew what he was doing. I said to him, 'Can I take the free-kick?' - he said, 'Yes'. He blew the whistle, I took it and it went into the back of the net."

Asked whether he felt Mason had lost control at that moment, Dunk replied: "I think you answered it there, didn't you? Yeah he did. Fact."

Brighton lost 1-0 to a Kyle Bartley header, with the Seagulls seeing Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck miss penalties - both hitting the woodwork in either half.
