‘Therefore, for Me, I Don’t Support the Decision of a Handball’ – Ex-premier League Referee View on Nunez’s Penalty Decision

Liverpool won the Community Shield final 3-1 against Manchester City on Saturday at the King Power Stadium, Darwin Nunez won Liverpool a controversial penalty after Craig Pawson consulted with VAR. An Ex-Premier League referee believes this was in fact the wrong call.

During Liverpool’s win over City, Nunez attempted a close-range header which struck the hand of midfielder Rodri, although play continued referee Pawson eventually consulted with VAR once the ball went out of play at the other end of the field.

The penalty was awarded after a long deliberation by officials and Mohammed Salah converted the spot kick in the 83rd minute to give Liverpool a 2-1 lead with seven minutes to play.
