Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson has claimed an unnamed Manchester United player blasted the standard of officiating in the Premier League during the Newcastle vs Manchester United clash on Sunday.
Both teams were left angry at several decisions made during the goalless draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
“It’s actually getting embarrassing,” Wilson said.
“I don’t even want to get started on the decisions in our game but I was waiting for a goal kick and one of the United players says to me, ‘what’s happened to the standard of referees in this country?’
“I was thinking wow. That’s a foreign player saying that and they’ve not experienced it before.
“I got wiped out and the defenders on their team are saying it should have been a penalty. I don’t even appeal now because I’m that fed up of going mad at referees.
“If it’s going to be a penalty and the ref has missed it you’re thinking VAR is going to do its job, so I’m waiting for the ball to go out of play.
“Then I go to him, ‘ref, what you saying?’ He was like, ‘it’s never a penalty’. I was thinking why am I wasting my time here. They were basically trying to say I was going through a gap that wasn’t there.”
