Victor Moses Cheats – Garry MonkFeatured, Latest News, News, Sports Sunday, October 19th, 2014
Swansea boss Garry Monk has accused Victor Moses and referee Michael Oliver of cheating after the Super Eagles winger was awarded a controversial penalty kick in Stoke City’s 2-1 victory on Sunday.
Monk said he was disappointed with referee Oliver’s decision to award Stoke the penalty which, according to him changed the game. He described the decision as a ‘’disgrace’’.
The Potters were awarded the spot kick when Angel Rangel challenged Moses, but it looked as if the Nigerian – on loan from Chelsea, went down easily.
‘’The penalty against us is a disgrace. It’s a disgraceful decision. Not in a million years is it a penalty and the problem we’ll have with it now is a lot of games we’re having this season a match-changing decision is going against us constantly and I don’t see anything being done about it.
‘’He (Victor Moses) should be punished for diving, it’s a clear dive which is cheating. He’s cheated the ref and then the ref’s cheated us for giving the decision that never was.
‘’I just think it’s a poor, poor decision and it’s cost us at a vital time where we’re just coming up to half-time – we should have been coming in 1-0 up and it’s a different game then, a different game plan for us second half.’
Monk also criticized Mike Riley’s response as the leaders of the referee‘s association, to issues concerning bad officiating.
‘’I’ve spoken to the referees about it and the association about it and I don’t hear anything from (referee chief) Mike Riley coming back to me at all, which I find poor leadership and the whole thing is becoming to mount up now which is becoming a very worrying situation. Monk said.
