The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) have released the full audio footage of Luis Diaz’s disallowed Liverpool goal on Saturday. The Colombian’s tidy strike was wrongly chalked off, with VAR Darren England and Dan Cook quick to realise their mistake but seemingly powerless to do anything about it.
The full transcript from the audio released by PGMOL reads as follows…
Linesman: “All good, both holding, waiting, delaying, delaying… Coming back for the offside, mate.”
VAR: “Just checking the offside. Delay, delay. Give the kick point, let’s go. Kick point please?”
Referee: “Yeah, no worries mate.”
Replay Operator: “So, here we are. Just get a tight angle.”
VAR: “Yeah, give me a 2D line ready after this one for frame two after that. That’s fine. Perfect, yeah. 2D line on the left boot.”
Replay Operator: “Let me just switch angles.”
VAR: “Romero, I think it is?”
Replay Operator: “I think it might be this angle better? Happy with this angle?”
Replay Operator: “2D line on the boot?”
VAR: “2D line on the boot.”
Replay Operator: “Yep, okay.”
VAR: “Check complete, check complete. That’s fine, perfect.”
Referee: “Cheers mate.”
VAR: “Thanks mate.”
Referee: “Well done boys, good process.”
Replay Operator: “Wait, wait, wait, wait. The on field decision was offside. Are you happy with this?”
Assistant VAR: “Yeah.”
Replay Operator: “Are you happy with this?”
Assistant VAR: “That’s wrong that, Daz.”
Replay Operator: “On field decision was offside. Are you happy with this image? It’s onside. The image that we gave them is onside.
Assistant VAR: “He’s played him, he’s gone offside.”
VAR: “Oh ****.”
Replay Operator: “Delay, delay. Oli (PGMOL Hub Ops) is saying to delay. Oli is saying to delay.”
Replay Operator: “Oli is calling in to say delay the game. The decision is onside.”
VAR: “Can’t do anything.”
Replay Operator: “Oli is saying to delay. Oli is saying to delay.”
Fourth official: “Yeah.”
Replay Operator: “Delay the game, stop the game.”
VAR: “They’ve restarted the game. Can’t do anything, can’t do anything.”
Assistant VAR: “Yeah, they’ve restarted. Yeah.”
VAR: “I can’t do anything. I can’t do anything. ****.”
