Former Manchester United and Newcastle United managers, Jose Mourinho and Graeme Souness have blasted the Premier League for inconsistency.
They were reacting to VAR and referee’s decision not to penalise Trent Alexander-Arnold for handball in the build-up to Liverpool’s opening goal against Manchester City on Sunday.
Fabinho fired Liverpool in front after six minutes, however, there was initial controversy following City’s appeal for handball moments earlier.
With City on the attack, the ball appeared to have struck the hand of Alexander-Arnold in the Liverpool area which led to huge protests from City, particularly Sergio Aguero.
However, the referee waved on and Liverpool broke down the other end leading to Fabinho unleashing a cracking strike from the edge of the area to put the Reds ahead.
Souness and Mourinho added that whilst the handball was debatable, the inconsistencies of the decision would frustrate them the most.
Mourinho told Sky Sports, “That’s the problem, the inconsistency. Next week, a similar situation, it will be a penalty.”
Souness added, “We’re all in the same boat here. We’ve all seen them given, we’ve all seen them not given.”
