In typical anti-Tottenham fashion, football fans have taken to social media to claim that the linesman who awarded Tottenham’s second penalty ‘celebrated’ the decision.
Trailing 2-1, Harry Kane was given the chance to atone when the linesman spotted Virgil van Dijk’s kick on Erik Lamela in the fourth minute of injury-time and the forward this time made no mistake, slotting low to Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius’ left as he joined the Premier League ‘100 club’ in dramatic fashion.
Some fans have claimed that the linesman fist-pumped the decision when the referee pointed to the spot after some consultation with the linesman who had flagged for the foul in the penalty area.
It’s ridiculous to think that he’s celebrating the decision. He’s had the balls to make a huge and correct call in a massively important game. He should be commended for his decision when he could have easily shirked his responsibility. What do you think?
