Clouds are gathering over Premier League referees. In the current year, more and more criticism is directed at them. Most recently, Burnley manager Vincent Kompany joined the large group of their detractors, declaring that the standard of referees has dropped this season. The Belgian made himself heard after several controversial situations.

Kompany’s team played against Chelsea on Saturday from the 40th minute in ten. The Burnley manager himself saw a red card for protesting after Lorenzo Assignon was sent off and a subsequent penalty kick was awarded. The relegation-threatened club, which is in 19th place in the table and has eight more games to go, finally drew 2:2 at Stamford Bridge even in a weakened state.

“The frustration comes from the fact that it’s a series of mistakes and it’s always debatable,” Kompany told reporters, adding: “It’s affecting our whole season. I guess it kind of makes me feel angry. But when the next moment comes, I have to do everything I can to not react. I hope it doesn’t happen again this season.”

“I always say what I think, I won’t shy away from it. I told the referees too that the decision-making this season was not good enough. I said it in a constructive way. Last year I said the English referees were the best in the world, I felt that common sense always applies – I don’t have it this year,” Kompany explained.

The former Manchester City captain said he apologized to the referee after the Chelsea game. His Burnley host tenth-placed Wolverhampton on Tuesday.
