Richard Keys took to Twitter to vent his frustration after Tottenham Hotspur had a chalked off against Bournemouth.
Just minutes after taking the lead through Dele Alli in the first half, Moussa Sissoko’s shot hit the thigh of team-mate Davinson Sanchez before the ball went on to hit the hand of the defender prior to him finding the back of the net.
The former Sky Sports presenter who now works for beIN Sports was left baffled by the decision of the officials to chalk off the goal.
Keys claimed that if the incident had happened with the ball hitting a Bournemouth player’s hand it would not have been awarded as a penalty and described the officials as the anti-goal police.
Thankfully the decision did not come back to haunt Tottenham after they managed to hold on despite a late rally from Bournemouth to pocket all three points in a 3-2 victory.
Here’s what Keys had to say.
The anti-goal Police are at it again. Spurs’ 2nd is ruled out for a whiff of handball – but they wouldn’t have given a pen for the offence. Madness. 🤷♂️.
