Lord Sugar took to Twitter after Tottenham Hotspur were denied a stonewall penalty during the first half against Leicester City.
Heung-min Son was brought down in the Foxes penalty area by defender Harry Maguire. His heavy first touch saw him outstretch his leg which made contact with the South Korean and saw him go to ground.
Instead of pointing to the penalty spot, referee Michael Oliver showed Son a yellow card for simulation and the player could not believe the decision.
Sugar was left to accuse Oliver of playing for Leicester following the incident.
It has certainly been one of the worst refereeing performances in the top flight for a considerable period of time. If FA chiefs have any sort of testicular fortitude, Oliver will be officiating a game in the Football League next week.
If Liverpool’s Mo Salah had been in Son’s shoes, we all know what the decision would have been.
Oliver later awarded Leicester a soft penalty, only for justice to be served when Lloris saved Vaardy’s effort.
This ref is playing for Leicester
