If the Spanish football federation’s competition committee deems Pique’s actions punishable, the Spanish international could face a suspension of up to three games. the crowd after heading home an 82ndminute equaliser against their local rivals, with home fans reacting furiously. “The committee will rule if the gesture is punishable, but we will take it to them so they can make a decision,” Tebas told reporters. “The regulations mean that certain ways of celebrating goals can be considered provocation.” Pique has a frayed relationship with Espanyol fans and has often riled them with provocative comments, recently mocking the club for being based in Cornella, a town 10km south-west of Barcelona. Following the game, Pique said his celebration was the least he could do after some of the insults Espanyol fans have aimed at his family, although Tebas disagreed. “We have to highlight the fact Espanyol worked well and until that moment, Pique’s goal, there was not a single insult aimed at Pique’s family, which is something we were worried about at La Liga. “His provocative gesture made the fans react and come out with insults, which are intolerable. “(The shushing celebration) has been done before but on few occasions has it generated widespread irritation. We should avoid celebrations that irritate people.” – Punishable… La Liga president Javier Tebas has said Gerard Pique could be punished for his celebration after scoring a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Espanyol on Sunday. Ref admits penalty question mistake Referee Jon Moss has admitted he was he had seen a crucial penalty decision in Sunday’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Tottenham. Moss gave Tottenham a late penalty at when the ball was passed to him but Reds defender Dejan Lovren inadvertently played him on by getting a faint touch when he tried to hack it clear. then spent several moments discussing with his linesman Eddie Smart whether the Tottenham striker was offside. In their exchange, picked up by a pitchside microphone, Smart is heard twice asking if Lovren touched the ball, as that would be a “deliberate action” and make the pass. Moss twice tells Smart he does not know if Lovren touched it or not and is heard via his headset, if he “got anything from TV”, only to almost immediately say “I’m giving the penalty” and point to the spot. This prompted many observers at the game to wonder if this decision was effectively awarded by video review despite the Premier League not yet using the system. That, however, has now been denied by the Professional Game Match they went professional in 2001. In a statement, a PGMO spokesman explained Moss was in a “good position” to see that a Liverpool player had touched the speed of the attack” was uncertain of who it was. The spokesman said Smart saw touched it. “His question created some momentary confusion when Eddie asked if ‘Lovren’ had touched the ball,” the spokesman said. “Moss knew a Liverpool player had touched the ball but not that it was Lovren. “He then asked a question to his fourth official Martin Atkinson and acknowledges that referencing ‘TV’ was misguided. Atkinson did not reply to the question and so had no involvement in the decision. “Having properly reflected on the questions asked, Jon knew a Liverpool played the ball and that no offside offence had occurred. He then awarded the penalty. “For the avoidance of doubt, Atkinson did not view a television monitor and did another controversially awarded spot-kick in stoppage-time to give Spurs a 2-2 draw. – Nampa/AFP
