Alan Sugar tweeted some baffling, and quite frankly hilarious, comments in response to our 97th minute equaliser from the spot against his beloved Tottenham Hotspur.
The Apprentice star believes that our players intentionally tried to abuse the shoddy new handball ruling, suggesting that Andy Carroll DELIBERATELY headed the ball at Eric Dier’s hand in a ploy to win a late penalty.
It’s no secret that the penalty we were awarded was nothing short of a complete farce – but the fact Sugar is accusing our players of ‘cheating’, as well as claiming that we tried to ‘ intimidate’ the referee into giving a handball decision our way is nothing more than sour grapes.
Here’s what he tweeted moments after the final whistle on Sunday:
It’s also amusing that he says we ‘called hand ball every time’ we go into the Spurs box – yet I’d argue Tottenham did this just as often, with arms going in the air more in hope than expectation when Harry Kane hit a cross straight at Jamal Lascelles int the second half.
Sugar’s anger should be directed toward the awful new rule, rather than our players – thats for certain.
We just have to thank our lucky stars that we got the rub of the green this time!
