Keith Hackett suggested Harry Kane’s goal for Tottenham against Leeds United was ruled out for offside because VAR did not want to overturn the decision on the pitch.

Addressed exclusively to Football insider, the former FIFA and Premier League referee criticized “really poor” officials for creating “mess” with their procedures and making the wrong decision.

Kane believed he put Tottenham 2-1 at Elland Road when he was played behind by Dele Alli before finishing smartly against Illan Meslier.

However, the assistant referee flagged him offside and VAR upheld his decision.

Asked about his assessment of the incident, Hackett said Football insider correspondant Connor Whitley: “When I look at it closely I think what happened here is if they looked at this decision realistically they will say ‘The assistant referee was wrong and that’s a objective that has been excluded that should never have been excluded outside. ‘

“The line shows it. Harry Kane is in the game.

“I call on the authorities to resolve this problem. It is unacceptable in the game that we allow goals to be excluded incorrectly and that is what the game is.

“VAR was influenced by the decision on the pitch. If they adopt the normal style of using the lines, that’s at stake. I don’t see how Harry Kane is offside.

“It was a mess and I was wrong. They were wrong in their procedures and wrong about the result. It really is bad arbitration.

Speaking after the game, interim Spurs boss Ryan Mason told Football London the decision changed the whole momentum of the game.

He explained, “The momentum, the whole feel of a football game, can change because at that point it’s stayed 1-1 and at 2-1 it’s a completely football game. different.”
