'I have no idea': the transcript between Jon Moss and linesman Eddie Smart before Kane's first penalty doesn't look good
In the Sky Sports transcript of the ref’s conversation with linesman Eddie Smart, Moss apparently says he has “no idea” whether Dejan Lovren touched the ball before proceeding to give the penalty.Smart: "All I need to know is, did Lovren touch the ball?"Moss: "I don't know."Smart: "If he's not touched the ball, it is offside, so you're chalking off the penalty. It has to be offside if Lovren has not touched the ball."Christian Eriksen: "He did touch the ball."Emre Can: "He didn't touch the ball."Moss: "Just talk to me again."Smart: "You know what I'm asking; I need to clarify, has Lovren touched the ball? If he has, it's a deliberate action and, therefore, it's a penalty. If he has not, it is offside."Moss: "I have no idea whether Lovren touched the ball to be honest with you. Martin, have you got anything from TV? I'm giving the penalty."
Surely, there is something to be done about this?
