Luke Shaw confused with referee's decision

Sun 28 February 2021 | 19:22

Another highly controversial decision has been made by yet another English referee.

Manchester United

and

Chelsea

faced each other today at Stamford Bridge and the game finished with a goalless draw. Maybe the most important moment of the match was when

Callum Hudson-Odoi

touched the ball with his hand in the penalty area. The referee stopped the game and after watching the incident, the penalty was not given.

Shaw

was puzzled by the referee's behavior, claiming that a United player was privately told the kick should have been given. 

"If it's not going to be a penalty, l don't think they needed to stop the game,"

he said to 

Sky Sports

 after the game.

"The ref even said to H [Harry Maguire] that if I say it is a pen then it is going to cause a lot of talk afterward. H got told it was a penalty.

I don't understand why the game is stopped. It's confusing with VAR. 

"I'm not going to moan about it because l don't think either team did enough to win."

Former United star Gary Neville said earlier on 

Sky Sports

"There's no doubt two or three months ago that's a penalty - and there's no doubt the referee would have abided by the referral. 

"But the referees are more bold and the handball laws are being changed in front of our eyes as the season goes along.

"I'm in agreement with the referee going to the monitor. But that was the first time I've seen players berating the referee when he was watching [the monitor]. Both sets of players were shouting at the referee when he was watching it.

"There's no doubt earlier in the season that this would have been a penalty. Hudson-Odoi's panic is the fact that his arm shouldn't be there."
