RobertsonFormer Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has criticized the referee in Tottenham's draw with Liverpool on Sunday, saying Andy Robertson was "lucky enough to walk". Referee Paul Tierney only gave a yellow card and Robertson was later shown a straight red for a foul on Emerson Royal under review by the VAR. "I think Kane's tackle is worse than Robertson's," said Clattenburg. BBC Sport were told that one of the mitigating factors in its decision not to fire Kane for his first-half challenge was the fact that Robertson put his standing leg out of the way of the Spurs captain's tackle. "To hear that Robertson needs a leg planted worries me because if he does, he won't go this Christmas," Clattenburg told Monday Night Club on BBC Radio 5 Live. "I think we, as referees, are sometimes guilty of knowing the laws of the game, but we don't understand the game. Referees can because they have a split second. VAR has all the angles, he has all the slow motion." , he can see the point of contact. "When they say his (Robertson's) leg needs to be planted, which is new to me, if the leg was up, the studs could be seen, it's reckless, he's down. We should be footballers understand better because he won't leave his leg there, why should he? He won't want his leg broken and his career in question. "Clattenburg, who served as a Premier League referee for 13 years from 2004 to 2017 was, is now Head of Officiating in Greece. "In Greece we publish the audio of VAR decisions," he said. They may not always agree with this, but they appreciate it. We might not agree with that, but then at least we'd understand. "Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp was booked for his reaction to the decision not to send Kane off the field and confronted those responsible full-time and said to Tierney:" Me have no problem with other referees, only with you. "Klopp told BBC Sport after the game:" I think we all agree that it is a clear red card. I just have to ask two people, Mr. Tierney and who Whatever the VAR was. You can give Robertson a red card, he knows that himself. But Harry shouldn't have been on the pitch in the second half, but the VAR was obviously awake because he told him to go to Robertson watch again. " Kane said he thought he had "a good, strong tackle" but added, "A couple of the guys said if you take it slower it looks a little worse than it is." That's what VAR is for, that's what the referees are for. If you play this team in such a big game, there will be tough tackles.
