Referee Andy Madley under fire for pitying Manchester United in their 7-0 loss to Liverpool
Former official Pierluigi Collina has criticized current Premier League referee Andy Madley, saying that Madley was too kind to Manchester United when the Red Devils lost to Liverpool 7-0 last weekend, which was a record loss.
When Jurgen Klopp’s team scored more goals than Erik ten Hag’s team in the second half, it was Mohamed Salah who took the lead.
Collina was surprised to find out that referee Madley had only given the game three more minutes of extra time.
According to The Times, the head of referees for FIFA said, “Over the past weekend, ten Premier League games were played, and four of them went over 100 minutes.”
“Two of them should have been higher than this because they were 7-0 and 4-0 [Brighton vs. West Ham United], and the referee probably didn’t think the extra time was needed,” he said.
“At Anfield, there were six goals scored in the second half.” I get that giving a lot of extra time when the score is 7-0 is hard to understand in this game.
Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah all scored three goals, and Roberto Firmino finished off Ten Hag’s players, who were in great shape before the game.

It was Manchester United’s worst loss in 92 years, and almost every Red Devils player was criticized for their poor play.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, quickly got over their embarrassing loss by beating Real Betis easily in the Round of 16 of the Europa League on Thursday night.
