Fans want FA to repay Nuno fine after Lee Mason’s performance vs Brighton

Lee Mason

Nuno fined for criticising Mason

Chaos erupted between Brighton and West Brom on Saturday, after the Seagulls were denied what appeared to be a completely legitimate goal. After referee Lee Mason blew his whistle for a free-kick which was scored, he swiftly blew again before the ball entered the goal. The official received plenty of criticism for his actions, and it is not the first time:

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was fined for criticising Lee Mason in November, after revealing his opinion that he is ‘not good enough’, and ‘has to improve, to get better.’

Officials across the Premier League have faced criticism this season, amid the use of VAR. Calls for officiating interviews, microphone connected referees and sanctions for poor performances have all mounted.

Fans want Nuno refund

Following Saturday’s latest controversial decision, many fans have now called upon the FA to refund Nuno Espirito Santo the £25,000 fine he was given for his comments regarding the professionality of Lee Mason.

Here is a selection of some of the aggrieved supporters:

It would be startling to see the FA do such a thing, so do not hold your breath.
