Mike Dean admits to VAR error in Chelsea Tottenham game
the Chelsea News
Mike Dean, the VAR official from Sunday’s Chelsea – Tottenham game, has confessed that he made a mistake in not sending the referee to the VAR monitors, in comments picked up by BBC Sport.
Well, it’s a little late now.
He pointed to the hectic situation and the “seconds” in which he had to decide whether a hair pull was violent conduct.
Well, it’s violent, and it’s conduct, so we’re not sure where the confusion is really.
“In the few seconds I had to study Romero pulling Cucurella’s hair, I didn’t deem it a violent act,” he said.
“I’ve since studied the footage, spoken to other referees and, upon reflection, I should have asked Taylor to visit his pitchside monitor to take a look for himself.
Ironically, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is now being investigated by the FA for his conduct and comments about the refereeing after the game. He will be fined and possibly banned, Dean will get paid for writing his column in the Daily Mail.
What a world, eh?
