But he is not there for long as he reacts to Harry Kane firing the ball into the roof of the net by dashing out to the technical area. Unfortunately for him and Tottenham, the goal is ruled out for offside. This results in Jose having a quiet word with fourth official Robert Jones, who gets a friendly pat on the back from the Portuguese for his troubles.7′ The ball goes out for a throw and Jose points it should be awarded to his Spurs.

JOSE MOURINHO had a pop at Dermot Gallagher after the former Prem ref insisted Raheem Sterling was right to escape a red card for his horror challenge on Dele Alli.Gallagher said on Sky Sports that Manchester City ace Sterling did not deserve to be sent off for his over-the-top tackle on Tottenham star Dele in Sunday’s clash between the clubs.2 Jose Mourinho has hit out at former Prem ref Dermot GallagherCredit: Getty Images2 Gallagher says Raheem Sterling did not deserve to be sent off for his over-the-top tackle on Tottenham star Dele AlliSpurs boss Mourinho reckoned VAR Kevin Friend got it wrong and slammed the way the new technology is being used to officiate matches.Sky Sports revealed fans have rated the introduction of VAR this season as just 4/10.Mourinho, whose Tottenham team host Southampton in an FA Cup fourth-round replay tomorrow, said: “If they watch Gallagher comments they will give 10/10 because for him everything is correct.“He could even find a way to say Sterling is a red card so if you give more screen time to Gallagher he will go 9/10 or 10/10.”VAR Friend also awarded City a first-half penalty when Spurs defender Serge Aurier fouled Sergio Aguero in the box.But Friend refused to give a pen when Sterling went down under a challenge from keeper Hugo Lloris as they battled to reach the rebound after the Frenchman had blocked Ilkay Gundogan’s spot kick.Asked if he thinks VAR will be used differently next season, with more refs going to check decisions on pitchside screens, Mourinho said: “I don’t know, the only thing I’ll say is if the refs are not allowed to go to the screen and to make the big decision in the game they have to change the name of the VAR and call it VR for video referee.José Mourinho rages in hilarious video after Raheem Sterling tried to win second penalty during Tottenham win“This is because at the moment the refs on the pitch they are not making the most important decisions of the game.“On Sunday Mike Dean decided it was not a penalty and the VAR decided it was a penalty. And Mike didn’t have the chance to go to the screen and to make himself a decision.“The man who made that decision was Kevin Friend so Mr Kevin Friend shouldn’t be called a VAR he should be called VR because he made the decision. The same thing with the yellow card and red card.“Mr Dean decided on the pitch yellow card which I accept as he is on the pitch and it is a very difficult job and I accept Mr Dean decided a yellow card. What I don’t accept is Mr Friend with the screen made the decision of keeping that so I just think one of two things.”He continued: “Give the referee the command and possibility to go to the screen and make big decisions or change the name of the VAR to VR and make the video referees.“But I keep saying one thing that is very important for me to keep saying, the mistakes on the pitch, I make mistakes, players make mistakes and the referees can also make them.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow all the latest news on Tottenham“But I don’t accept mistake made by the VR because when I play PlayStation I don’t make mistakes, I only make mistakes when I am on the touchline.“When I was with Gallagher working for Sky, I never made a mistake. I make mistakes when I am there on the touchline.“With the referees it is the same. They can make mistakes and I have full respect for them because it is very, very difficult and, again, 200 mph.“When they have all the time on the VAR it is more difficult to accept and we are being very, very punished, very punished by decisions of the VAR.” LATEST FOOTBALL NEWSCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticFootage of a furious Mourinho going mental on the touchline on Sunday went viral.The Spurs boss added: “Yes in a funny way, not in a good way.“I think the fact that now is allowed to have the screen in front of us is not good for our emotions because we watch and we see exactly the same as the VAR does.“My reaction was just based on being able to watch everything on the screen so I watched the Dele Alli situation, the penalty, the pretend penalty, I watched everything so that creates emotions but OK I went viral for the wrong reasons.”José Mourinho delighted with Bergwijn’s Spurs debut but fumes that Raheem Sterling wasn’t shown red card in win

The Atlético de Madrid regains power in the air game. Felipe’s goal against Levante was the sixth scored with his head in The league and the ninth adding the matches of Champions. This represents 27.27% of the goals scored in the domestic competition and 30% adding the goals in European matches. Álvaro Morata has scored four of the nine head goals scored by the mattresses. The ‘9’ headed the ball to the net against Getafe, Sevilla and Osasuna in LaLiga and against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League. The other five goals with the testa have been Diego Costa (Majorca), belt (Spanish), Philip (I raised), Savic and Héctor Herrera (both before Juventus). The arrival of Trippier Y I gave it has contributed greater verticality and precision in the centers. The English adds three assists (Getafe, Osasuna and Juventus) for the two of the Brazilian (Levante and Leverkusen). To these goal passes must be added the assistance of Arias (Seville), Koke (Majorca), Morata (Espanyol) and belt (Betis). Atlético de Madrid recovers in attack one of the best weapons that worked in the past.As in the 13-14 League.The top goals of those of Simeone they remember those of the 2013/14 season when they got the League title. The Atleti he adds six goals in this way in the League after the first round, while in the season he won the championship he had nine in 19 games finishing that season with 17, six of them Raul Garciafour of Godin, the last one at Camp Nou to win the League, two from Diego Costa and one of Tiago, town, Koke, Alderweireld Y Miranda.
Dani won the job last season competing with Ortolá, now in the Tenerife. This season maintained ownership after the arrival of Koke. The Malaga goal returned to I raised at the closing of the winter market and Jovanovic He is now his sports rival. However, the main competition of Dani Giménez from the end of the season is called pubalgia. The Galician goalkeeper draws pubic problems from the final stretch of the past year that have increased in recent weeks. Before him Las Palmas Peru Nolaskoain He had to perform the kicks in the last phase of the match and yesterday he did his first training on the grass after doing a specific job all week. And is that the medical services are very aware of his condition, although they are optimistic and are sure that he can complete the League playing and without going through the operating room. If there is something that has not changed in the Sports In these last two seasons, that’s the goal. Dani Giménez fwas the first signing after the descent to Second and since then the veteran Galician goal has been indisputable to play uninterruptedly the last 67 games of League from the Coruña group. A record in which he has also had the confidence of five different coaches: Natxo González, Martí, Anquela, Luis César and Fernando Vázquez.
Hopes to have him on Saturday were slim, but the club has tried because he is aware that Stuani is vital. So far this year he has scored 22 goals and without him, this season, Girona does not know the victory. He has been low in four games and the balance is two draws (Sporting Y Ponferradina) and two defeats (Albacete Y Almeria). Competition ignores the allegations, with videographic evidence, presented by Girona and maintains what the referee wrote in the minutes of the match: he was admonished by “take down an opponent in the ball dispute recklessly”. In this way, the Committee has chosen to suspend Stuani for a match for yellow accumulation following article 112 of the Disciplinary Code and impose an accessory fine to the club of 200 euros and 600 to the tip in application of article 52. 7 From the club they accept this decision and, according to the red and white entity, They do not plan to bring an appeal to the Appeals Committee. Martí already knows that he will not be able to count on Stuani before Ponferradina and is looking for a substitute. The best located would be, waiting to know if Jonathan Soriano he recovers or not from his injury, Samu Saiz. The attacker has played 18 League matches this course and has scored a bit (he gave the win over the Huesca, 1-0) and distributed two assists. Of course, he has not started since day 21, before the Mirandés (0-3). There has been no forgiveness for Cristhian Stuani. It seemed complicated that the Competition Committee responded to the allegations presented by the Girona to leave without effect the yellow that the striker saw in the match of last day against Deportivo and this Wednesday the sanction has been confirmed. In this way, the Uruguayan will cycle in this Saturday’s duel against Ponferradina and Pep Lluís Martí will not be able to count on his reference in attack.
