But Vladimir was the one who made the referee make some decisions . By nipping the ball out with your toes or knocking the ball out or blocking the ball nicely. because he only touches the top of the ball. So his feet could go on. But he made Anthony Taylor make that decision.”

Managers don’t usually come out to support referees’ role in their players. But the spirit of Moyes who dare to say this, however, Su Escuela fans and West Ham have the right to say that it has treat unfairly because if the referee did point to the penalty spot. VAR will not intervene. And Moyes’ disappointment is understandable as Sufald could have actually done better.
