After Chelsea’s loss, Tottenham fan Jamie O’Hara wants the’stupidest rule’ in football changed.
Tottenham lost 3-0 on aggregate to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final, but Jamie O’Hara believes his former team was treated unfairly on Wednesday night.
Jamie O’Hara, a former Tottenham Hotspur player, took to Twitter to express his displeasure with Harry Kane’s goal against Chelsea on Wednesday night, which was ruled out for offside.
Blues beat Spurs 1-0 on aggregate to reach the Carabao Cup final, but without VAR, it could have been a different story for Antonio Conte’s side.
Spurs had a goal disallowed and two penalties awarded to them, but both decisions were overturned.
Despite the fact that both penalty decisions were correct, with one foul occurring outside the box and the second not even being a foul, it is the Kane goal being chalked off for offside that has football fans talking.
Lucas Moura pounced on a loose ball and passed it to the Englishman in front of goal, who converted.
Goalscorer Antonio Rudiger had returned to the goal line, and Kane was half a meter ahead of technical last man Andreas Christensen, indicating he was offside.
O’Hara, on the other hand, was enraged by the rule, telling his Twitter followers: “This rule is absolutely outrageous, how on Earth is that offside?”
“I know the bloody rule, but it’s a joke and needs to be changed; Kepa dives in, loses it, and we’re penalized; it’s the most stupid rule in football.”

Some agreed with the 35-year-old, while others joked that the former Wolverhampton Wanderers star was fighting a losing battle in trying to change the rule.
Some neutrals also wanted O’Hara to elaborate on the rule changes he would make.
Chelsea dominated the match from start to finish, and even if Kane’s goal had stood, some will argue that Conte’s side would not have rallied to level the tie on aggregate.
“I think that at the end of the two games, Chelsea deserved to reach and play the final,” Conte said after the game.
To be honest, we are and we accept this.
“In the second half, we created numerous scoring opportunities.
We deserved a better result in the second leg than a 1-0 defeat.
However, it is necessary.
