Tottenham boss Redknapp says referee guessed over Chelsea FA Cup ghost goal

Monday 16 April 2012

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has accused referee Martin Atkinson of guessing whether or not a Juan Mata effort crossed the line during Spurs’ 5-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat by Chelsea, the Guardian has reported.



The goal was given by Atkinson but replays immediately showed that the ball had not crossed the line during a goalmouth scramble. The award of the goal made the scores 2-0 to Chelsea and despite a Gareth Bale strike seven minutes later, Chelsea’s lead proved insurmountable, with Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda adding before full-time to the advantage that was first opened by Didier Drogba’s spectacular first-half goal.


In the aftermath of the match and the decision, Redknapp was quoted as saying: “He must have guessed. He can’t have been sure. He’s just made a mistake unfortunately. A big mistake.” Redknapp also received an apology from the official and refused to blame the phantom goal for Tottenham’s defeat, instead admitting that Spurs allowed the match to become to open as they chased down the deficit.
