Leicester goalkeeper accuse Swansea of goal tampering

Published 1 Comments

An unusual event occurred before the evening kick off at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday when Leicester goalkeepers had forwarded multiple complaints to officials about the size of the goals.

The rules and regulations say that the goal should stand at eight feet tall and after professional measurements, the results showed that the posts were at the correct height. After the unusual event, Nigel Pearson explained the situation to the press saying "the keepers said they felt bigger than usual". 


Across went referee Mike Jones with Swansea officials with measuring tape and after a short investigation, the results showed that the claims were false.

But after Gary Monk's recent burst of controversy, it seemed an appropriate thing to do. After the Swans' 1-1 draw with Stoke last week, the Welsh clubs' manager exhibited his thoughts on Victor Moses with firm claims on the Nigerian "cheating" in order to get the penalty to bring the Potters on level terms.

BBC's Match Of The Day commentator Conor McNamara tweeted after the measurements "referee says both posts are the correct height. Moral of the story: don't invite Leicester round to measure your carpet anytime soon" as he made fun of the bizarre situation.
