Heurelho Gomes has criticised referee Mark Clattenburg for not making his instructions clear at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Tottenham were furious as a controversial goal from Manchester United winger Nani was allowed by Clattenburg to seal a 2-0 victory for the home side.
The Portugal international stroked the ball home after Spurs goalkeeper Gomes placed the ball on the ground assuming a free-kick had been awarded by the official for a handball by the United player.
Clattenburg, however, allowed the goal to stand, having seemingly encouraged Tottenham to play on in accordance with the advantage rule.
But Gomes feels the referee did not communicate his instructions, and insists there is no way could have failed to have seen Nani’s handball.
“In my opinion, the whole stadium saw what happened,” said Gomes in The Sun. “It is impossible the ref did not see the handball.
“He did not gesture in any way to play on, like you would normally expect. When I put the ball down on the floor, he started gesturing with his shoulders.
“He is supposed to use his hands. It was not clear to anyone. It was only when I saw Scholes shouting at Nani to shoot that I reacted.
“The biggest mistake was not being clear afterwards. Maybe he did not have to give the foul but you have to be clear. He only gestured after I put the ball down.
“Nani stopped the game with his hands but this is not basketball.”
The Brazilian insists his own actions were justified.
“I feel bad, as I let in a goal. But I would react the same again,” he added.
“The ref was not clear. He gesticulated with his shoulders and barely moved his arms. He was not able to explain and show to anyone in the stadium what was going on.
“Even the linesman was confused. He told me he did not know what the ref gave.
“He said he saw the handball and told me to go back to the goal, that he would tell the ref what he saw.”
