Clattenburg criticizes the refereeing after Liverpool’s goal

Mark Clattenburg, the refereeing analyst for the Nottingham Forest first team, explained that referee Paul Tierney made a mistake in his decision not to return the ball to his team after the start of play minutes before the winning goal, which was scored by the rival Liverpool in the 99th minute of the match between the two sides in the English Premier League, Saturday.
Nottingham’s 1-0 defeat against its guest, Liverpool, ended in chaos after the final whistle, while the angry Nottingham crew surrounded referee Tierney, and Stephen Reid, a member of the home team’s technical staff, ended up receiving a red card.
Referee Tierney stopped the match after Ibrahima Konate, Liverpool’s defender, was injured in the head, while Nottingham was attacking, and its player, Kallon Hudson-Odoi, was in possession of the ball.
Play then resumed when Liverpool’s goalkeeper got the ball, and the team took the lead, scoring the winning goal with a header from Darwin Nunez.
Analyst Mark Clattenburg told reporters on Saturday: “If the referee stops the match, and he has the right, due to a head injury, the law requires him to return the ball to the team that was in possession of it before the stoppage, and that was certainly Nottingham.”
Clattenburg, who was dismissed from the presidency of the Referees Committee in the Saudi Football Association in 2019, added: “We will turn to the Referees Association… and we will discuss what happened on the field. “Evangelos Marinakis, the club owner, is very angry, wants to see results, and feels that his team has been wronged again.”
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said that referee Tierney made the same decision against his team earlier in the match.
