PGMOL and the Premier League will regularly publish in-game audio recordings of referees and video assistants until the end of the 2023/24 season

This is the reaction to the scandalous case of Diaz’s disallowed goal in the Tottenham – Liverpool match

England Judicial Regulatory Body PGMOL together with English Premier League committed to publish in-game audio recordings negotiations between judges and video assistants until the end season 2023/24.

This move was a reaction to regular refereeing errors in recent weeks, the peak of which was the scandalous match between Tottenham and Liverpool (2:1) in the seventh round of the Premier League.

The audio will not be broadcast live, but will appear after matches on football themed shows. In addition, PGMOL chief Howard Webb will appear on television over the next week to discuss key episodes.

Let us remind you that in the first half, Reds midfielder Luis Diaz opened the scoring. However, the referee overturned the goal after consulting with the video assistants. In fact, the goal was scored according to the rules, and the referee misunderstood the words of the VAR assistants. In the end, Tottenham won with a score of 2:1, scoring the winning goal in stoppage time. Note that the Reds finished the match with ten men.

Subsequently PGMOL admitted a “clear and obvious error of fact” by the match referees, and Liverpool accepted the apology.

Another consequence of the sensational match was the suspension of Darren England and Dan Cook, who were responsible for VAR in that match, from refereeing for the coming weekend.

The other day there was even talk about the possibility of replaying the match, taking into account the imperfections of the Premier League regulations and the loopholes in the UEFA rules in this regard. True, the chances of such a development of events are scanty.

Today, October 7, Tottenham (2nd place, 17 points) will play away against Luton. Liverpool, one point behind, will play in Brighton tomorrow.
