Bournemouth’s Dan Gosling asks disgraceful Moss to apologize
Bournemouth’s Dan Gosling has asked referee Jonathan Moss to apologize and claims he was a disgrace in the Cherries’ defeat to Sheffield United on Sunday. The Cherries lost 2:1 at Bramall Lane with a late goal from John Lundstram which put a dent on their hopes of survival this season.
Gosline cut an outraged figure after the game and alleged that Moss mocked his side throughout the game and showed zero respect to the visitors on the day.
“The ref didn’t help. Giving soft fouls away and little comments to two or three of the lads didn’t help as well really,” Gosling told the Daily Echo.
“I thought it was very disrespectful what he was saying.
“It was just the little niggly ones and then the little sarky comments. The officials talk about respect at the start of the season and there was zero respect from Jon Moss on Sunday.
“I thought he was a disgrace. The comments that he made especially to me and one other player – talking about the relegation zone and ‘you’re still in the relegation zone’, ‘you’re having one’, ‘your team’s having one’ this and that and it was very, very disrespectful.”
Gosling confirmed the comments were made when the game was on before adding: “he should really come out and apologize because I thought he was a disgrace.”
This was the first time Moss was officiating a Bournemouth game this season. The defeat left Eddie Howe’s men just 2 points off the relegation places although they have a game in hand. Meanwhile, there has been no comment from the Premier League on the matter.
