Brighton’s Late Penalty Was Very Soft – Henderson


Jordan HendersonLiverpool midfielder, Jordan Henderson has come out to blast VAR after his club was denied victory at Brighton by a late penalty call.

Henderson recently revealed that Brighton striker, Danny Welbeck even admitted that a spot-kick award was very soft.

According to Hendo, he saw the replay and it is not a penalty, so he wonders why the ref gave it despite it not being a clear and obvious call.

He added that Liverpool played very well today and the team definitely deserved the three points.

His words, “It was ours. It should be three points, in my opinion.

“I’ve seen the replay. Who would be happy? It’s not a pen. It feels like we’re standing here every week and discussing incidents. I don’t want to get into trouble, but for me it’s not a penalty.

“Danny Welbeck said to me it wasn’t a penalty. There were four or five of them who felt it wasn’t a penalty.

“To overturn it, it has to be clear and obvious. Is that a clear and obvious penalty, to go to the screen and overturn it?”

“Obviously the referees know better than us, but I thought the lads were brilliant today and deserve the three points.

“In the first half there were things we could improve on, in the second half we did that.

“We had a couple of goals ruled off for offside. Overall we’ve got to be positive and take the performance out of it, because the result isn’t anything else but an error in my option.

“You’d rather get beat by two or three than end up like that. It feels like two points taken away from us.”
