TV presenter, Richard Keys has berated the Premier League over their decision to appoint some referees for the next round of matches, despite the obvious errors they made in their last games.
Controversial referee, Anthony Taylor is set to preside over Chelsea’s game against Fulham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon— just days after he awarded a soft penalty against Wigan, as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United.
It’s not the first time this has happened with Taylor, and Keys has now stated that he believes the Manchester-born referee, along with a few others, like Chris Kavanagh and Craig Pawson should actually be suspended, and not allowed to officiate any games this weekend.
He wrote on X: “You can’t make this up. Chris Kavanagh who oversaw DCL (Dominic Calvert-Lewin) appealed s/o gets Newcastle/City & VAR for Utd/Spurs this w/e. Altrincham based Anthony Taylor conned by Fernandes gets Chelsea. Craig Pawson gets Brighton. Michael Salisbury Sheff Utd. They should all be given the w/e off to study.”
Taylor is one of the most experienced referees in the Premier League at the moment, but there’s no denying that the 45-year-old has now been involved in quite a number of controversies, which isn’t good for the his reputation.
