Coach Mikel Arteta could not hide his frustration when he saw the home team lose 3 points after a controversial goal against Newcastle. Arteta called it a disgrace and Arsenal spoke up in support of their captain.
“Arsenal fully supports coach Mikel Arteta’s post-match statements after the referee team’s unacceptable decision and VAR’s error in Saturday’s match.
We acknowledge the great efforts and performances from the players, as well as the fans, who attended St James’ Park.
The Premier League is the most exciting league on the planet with the best players, coaches and fans, everyone deserves better.
PGMOL needs to quickly redefine operating standards [các trận đấu] and focus on actions that will separate them from having to reanalyze situations, attempt explanations, or issue apologies.”
We support and appreciate the ongoing efforts of our Chief Referee, Howard Webb, and welcome working together to achieve the world-class officiating standards that our tournament demands.”
