Bournemouth ask Premier League to investigate alleged comments by referee Jonathan Moss


Bournemouth have written to the Premier League to request them to investigate remarks allegedly made by referee Jonathan Moss in Sunday's defeat to Sheffield United.

Midfielder Dan Gosling told the Bournemouth Echo he should "come out and apologise" after claiming the official had shown their players "zero respect" in the game at Bramall Lane.

He alleges Moss mocked the Bournemouth players for being in the relegation zone.

"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," the midfielder told the Bournemouth 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.

“I think he should really come out and apologise because I thought he was a disgrace.”

The Professional Game Match Officials Limited, which manages officials in the Premier League, has declined to comment.
