’s again againstWest Brom
. Lee Mason allowed and disallowed a quickly taken free-kick byLewis Dunk
, not once but twice in a short period of time. Dunk was very angry with the decision and called it embarrassing.
He also said the official, like players and managers, should have come out and explained his decision-making to the media.
"It's embarrassing, it's a horrendous decision,”
he toldSky Sports
“I said to the ref, 'can I take it?' He blew his whistle and I took it. Just because there was so much pressure from the bench. Why doesn't he come and speak to the press like me? Never, they hide behind their bubble.
"I don't think he knew what he was doing. He gave the goal, why did he give it? I don't know why VAR was getting involved, he said 'goal'... you can look on the video if you want.”
