(Video) Harry Maguire’s unseen dive v Liverpool goes viral – both ref and assistant thought this was a foul

Posted by

The refereeing has been plenty worse than Paul Tierney’s on Sunday evening, but that is a very low bar, in truth.

He blew up six seconds early in the first-half instead of allowing Sadio Mane a one-on-one opportunity, which was amateur – and we remember at the time this moment just making us laugh.

Both he and the assistant, who was right in front of it, considered this a foul from Mo Salah on Harry Maguire.

Maguire literally puts his hands behind him, starts grinding on Mo, before flopping forward to the floor.

If that’s a foul on a 95kg centre-back, the game’s gone!

  1. It’s a feature of Liverpool games that Salah can be fouled repeatedly with no punshment, but for Mo to be punished for a player thowing himself to the ground is new. I assume all officials will be adopting this new rule for future Liverpool games.

  2. Just get to know that, it’s not referees and VAR are failing this is a conspiracy against liverpool.

  3. Lets get used to it shall we practically throttled Salah the other week and nothing given they should all go back to reffing kids games
