Chelsea’s Gary Cahill fumes at referee Andre Mariner Twitter as Chelsea draw with Swansea

January 26, 2016

Manager Antonio Conte labelled the referee’s decision on the incident ‘a great mistake’ while Cahill voiced his anger on Twitter and in his post-match interview.
‘It’s a clear foul,’ he told the BBC. ‘I’m frustrated. Come on, seriously! You could be sat on the moon and see it is a clear foul.
‘I took the touch away from [Fer], he came through the back of me. It was clear as day and seeing it back has made me even more angry.
Cahill tweeted the word ‘incredible’ in response to Marriner’s decision not to award a free-kick

‘It’s all fun and games for the fans, isn’t it, but it’s the players who suffer. That kills me and my team. We have dropped two points which is massive in this league.
‘Look at my face! It’s incredible. I said to the referee: ‘There’s three of you that can see that’. There were two fouls and between the officials they have said that they couldn’t see it. For me that is incredible.’
Cahill posted a short clip of the incident on Twitter, before adding another tweet that read: ‘Incredible’, followed by a series of angry emoji images. Both tweets have since been deleted.

The FA’s rules on comments on officials do not allow: ‘Comments which are improper, which bring the game into disrepute, which are threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting [and/or] comments about match officials which imply bias, attack the officials’ integrity or which are personally offensive in nature.’
It is also understood that Cahill went to Marriner’s room to discuss the decision after the game.
Chelsea captain John Terry also posted an image on Instagram of him being held by Jordi Amat in the Swansea penalty area in the first half.

Manager Conte said: ‘For the second goal, I think everyone can see the double foul on Cahill. I think there is a great mistake, a great mistake of the referee. But this can happen.’
In an interview with Sky he labelled Marriner’s call ‘a bad decision’.
Conte added: ‘I also want to say this can happen, to one side or the other. I don’t want to complain about this. But that is the reality. Yes, it’s a pity.’
The Italian called on his side to find a ‘killer’ instinct after the three-minute collapse that was topped by Fer’s goal.
Diego Costa had put Chelsea ahead but they self-destructed with Thibaut Courtois conceding a penalty, scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson, and Cahill’s hesitation proving costly for Fer’s goal before Costa rescued a result with an acrobatic equaliser.

‘We had the possibility to kill the game and, if you have that possibility, you must kill the game. We must learn this.’
Conte will wait for tests on John Terry’s ankle injury which saw him leave the stadium on crutches but is confident in his captain’s availability ahead of facing Liverpool on Friday night.
‘Tomorrow we’ll see the situation about his ankle,’ the manager said. ‘He’s a warrior. I’m not worried.’
