Report!! Ben Foster name and claim the refereeing chiefs who pressured Sky Sports to cover up the major VAR blunder during Liverpool controversial 2-1 loss Tottenham

The PGMOL have reportedly refuted claims from ex-Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster that refereeing chiefs pressured Sky Sports to cover up the major VAR blunder during Liverpool‘s controversial 2-1 loss to Tottenham last weekend.

The fallout from the game has dragged on this week after the refereeing group admitted a ‘significant human error’ was made that saw VAR Darren England and assistant Dan Cook stood down after failing to award Luis Diaz‘s first half goal, despite being clearly onside.

The Colombian forward’s goal was ruled as offside by the on-pitch officials – and a leaked audio from inside the VAR studio revealed that England had told referee Simon Hooper ‘check complete’ having mistakenly believed that the goal was given.

The fury over the highly-debated incident has seen Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp call for a replay of the game, which Spurs won in the last minute thanks to a Joel Matip own goal, while Liverpool also saw two men sent off in contentious circumstances.

Giving his take on the Diaz incident, former Man United and Wrexham keeper Foster alleged there was a cover-up and claimed Sky had been pressured by the PGMOL to not show further replays of the offside.
