Kasper Schmeichel Was Fuming About Refereeing Decisions During Spurs Loss

Kasper Schmeichel Was Fuming About Refereeing Decisions During Spurs Loss

Leicester City have once again missed out on a top four finish on the final day of the season, with their 4-2 loss to Spurs condemning them to fifth place.

Leicester needed to get a result this afternoon and hope other games went their way in order to qualify for the Champions League, but they were unable to do so despite Chelsea's loss to Aston Villa.

It was an odd game, one in which the home side led twice. Jamie Vardy scored two goals from the penalty spot, but their goalkeeper was not happy with the referee after the game.

Kasper Schmeichel believes he was fouled in the buildup to Spurs' second equaliser, with the Danish international punching the ball into his own net.

There were also questions about Spurs' third goal, with Harry Kane appearing to handle the ball in the buildup.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the final whistle, Schmeichel did not hide his feelings on the referee's performance.

Obviously it's very raw, but we're very disappointed. It was a very strange game.

Decisions didn't go our way. I can't believe he hasn't given a foul for [Sanchez] jumping into me, he hasn't given a foul for that. It's the same thing, he doesn't given the handball.

I don't know what he's playing at.

It's very disappointing at the moment, but when we look back and reflect we won the FA Cup this season and have taken it again to the last day.

I would rather be doing that and missing out than just sitting in mid-table and doing nothing...

There has been massive progression. We won a major trophy and got more points than we did last season, so that's progression.

Leicester will now play in the Europa League next season, and while their FA Cup triumph last weekend will soften the blow, this certainly feels like an opportunity missed.
