Wolves finally told why Toti Gomes' goal was disallowed against Liverpool

Wolves have received a response from the PGMOL about Toti Gomes’ goal that was disallowed against Liverpool.

The two teams played out a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup third round recently at Anfield.

Wanderers would have booked their place in the fourth round, but two huge decisions went against them.

Firstly, Mo Salah scored for Liverpool despite being in an offside position when the ball was played. His goal actually correctly stood though, because Toti played the ball before it dropped to him.

But it has caused a big debate about the offside law.

But it was the second incident in the game that really caused outrage.

Toti scored for Wolves, but it was then flagged for an offside against Matheus Nunes. The midfielder had received the ball after a clearance from his corner.

The controversy was that Nunes’ position was not picked up by any cameras. As there could be no proof about whether he was offside or not, the on-field decision was upheld and the goal remained chalked off.

Wolves have since been in contact with the PGMOL about the incident.

And the club has now received a response – and it will not go down well.

According to Daily Mirror reporter Alex Richards, ‘Wolves have been told by the PGMOL that the fault for last week’s VAR failure at Liverpool lies with an ITV cameraman, because he zoomed in too fast’.

Wolves stung by one of the worst-ever decisions at Anfield, as PGMOL respond

It is an absolute joke that Wolves have been denied a goal and potentially a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup, all because of an error from an ITV cameraman.

In light of this information, Toti’s goal being chalked off simply has to be on the worst decisions in recent memory.

He has been denied perhaps one of the greatest moments he’ll have in his playing career. All because a cameraman zoomed in too far.

It is incredible to think that the VAR would have to rely on images from a TV broadcaster. Why do they not have their own independent cameras?

Already, many Wolves fans on social media just aren’t buying it.
