Solskjaer demands clarity: ‘No idea what referees decide and why’ | Foreign football


Manchester United trainer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says coaches need more clarity on Premier League hand rules after a series of controversial decisions in the early weeks of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur was given a penalty against Newcastle United on Sunday when Eric Dier, who turned his face away from the ball, got the ball against his hand when he jumped. Manchester United itself was also disadvantaged during the opening round, according to Solskjaer, when Victor Lindelof was given a penalty against Crystal Palace.

“You now have no idea what referees decide and why”, said Solskjaer. “We need to get clarity again. We already have a whole series of questionable decisions. There are so many changes and nuances in different rules. ”

In the Netherlands too, the changed rule around hands is causing a lot of discussion. For example, PSV defender Nick Viergever was surprised in the away game against Heracles Almelo on Sunday that he received a penalty kick when the ball hit his shoulder.

The upper part of the arm, actually the extension of the shoulder, is no longer seen as hands since this season. If football players keep their arms at their sides and the ball is shot against them, it is not hands. If the arm makes an unnatural movement and you get the ball against it, it is hands, unless you accidentally hit the ball against your own hand or arm.
