Referee Moss ‘misguided’ in penalty decision

Breaking news

Referee Jon Moss was “misguided” when he asked fourth official Martin Atkinson if he had “anything from TV” during Tottenham’s draw with Liverpool on Sunday, the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) says.

Moss was captured on camera speaking to Atkinson via his headset before awarding Spurs a penalty.
