Member of 'secret' Premier League panel caught blabbing about verdicts as former international breaks vow of silence | The Sun

WHICH member of the ‘secret’ Premier League Key Match Incidents Panel has blabbed on social media about verdicts?

The independent group looking at any controversial moments in games are anonymous and are meant to be sworn to silence.

But the former international has been taking it further by putting  opinions on X and backing up the decisions.

There have been a number of controversial incidents in the Premier League this season.

Arguably the biggest occurred during Tottenham's 2-1 win over Liverpool in September.

Luis Diaz thought he'd opened the scoring in the 34th minute, but his goal was wrongly disallowed when he was deemed to be offside.

The PGMOL were then forced to issue an apology after the match, sparking outrage from fans.

Wolves also felt aggrieved when they were denied a late penalty in their first game of the season against Manchester United.

With the score 1-0 to the Red Devils in the 96th minute, Pedro Neto sent a cross into the box.

Sasa Kalajdzic jumped up to win the ball, but United goalkeeper Andre Onana clattered into him.

PGMOL chief Howard Webb later admitted that it should have been a penalty to Wolves.

There was another catalogue of VAR checks during Newcastle's 1-0 win over Arsenal earlier this month.

Anthony Gordan's second-half goal was all that separated the two teams in the end, but Mikel Arteta was adamant that it shouldn't have stood.

Three VAR checks took place in the build-up to the goal, with the first checking that the ball was in play.

The second check looked at a potential offside and the third – and arguably most controversial – checked for a foul from Joelinton on Gabriel Magalhaes.

Webb has since revealed that the decision to give the goal was correct.

Arteta has also been charged with a breach of FA rules for his furious post-match rant.
