Fulham boss laments Josh Maja’s disallowed goal in defeat to Spurs



Fulham manager Scott Parker has expressed his disappointment after Josh Maja’s equaliser against Tottenham Hotspur was disallowed for handball by the VAR.

Fulham manager Scott Parker has expressed his disappointment following Josh Maja’s disallowed goal in Thursday’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Parker believes the video assistant referee is “killing” football’s excitement but added his side will not surrender in their fight to avoid relegation.

Fulham were beaten 1-0 by Tottenham on Thursday after Maja had a deserved second-half equaliser disallowed.

Mario Lemina was penalised for handball in the build-up, despite his arm being by his side as a clearance struck him.

“It is the rule – I think it’s crazy,” Parker told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I’m complaining at the rule. We want it to be the most entertaining league in the world, with goals. I don’t know what [Lemina] can do. We just need some common sense. We are trying to make football so pure and sterile it becomes unrealistic.”

He added: “We want to see goals and excitement but I am sorry to say that VAR is killing every part of that. You are losing the raw emotion of the game we absolutely love.”
