Mark Clattenburg ‘apologised’ For Allowing Alexis Sanchez Handball



Mark Clattenburg has apologised to Hull City players after allowing Alexis Sanchez’s controversial opener that set the Gunners on the path to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Replay showed that Alexis clearly handled the ball into the net in the 34th minutes when the ball deflected off his hand after Eldin Jakupovic had blocked Sanchez earlier strike, before making it 2-0 with a penalty kick after Hull’s midfielder Sam Clucas was sent off for handling the ball inside the 18-yard box.

Hull City players protested but the protest wasn’t enough as the ref proceed to award the goal for the home side.

Robertson speaking to SkySport1 said: “Yeah, it was handball,”

“When we came out at half-time, the referee’s apologised to us and said there was handball so he’s obviously looked at it at half-time and seen he was in the wrong.

“At the end of the day the decisions don’t go for you when you come to these big stadiums and that’s killed us because you see the way we were after halftime.

“He said he wasn’t 100 percent sure, obviously we can argue he shouldn’t have given the goal but he can argue he should have.

“Not many referees admit they’re wrong. It’s good but it doesn’t make it any better.”

Hull City’s manager Marco Silva also confirmed the statement:
“My players said the referee apologised to them at the start of the second half for the handball. I am not happy. We didn’t deserve the result. Some important decisions were not good for us.”

Apologies or not what’s done is done, it’s three points for the home side as two defining fixture approach them, Gunners will be Facing Bayern Munich in the knockout phase of the Champions League and also looking forward to Sutton United in the FA Cup.
