BeIN SPORTS presenter Richard Keys questioned why the sport couldn’t resume without the usage of the technology. He tweeted: “Are we so depending on technology now that Leeds/Arsenal can’t be played? They’ve gone off since the ref has no contact with match centre. 40,000 are sat waiting for something to occur. This isn’t right. Just get on with it.”
Players from each teams got here back out onto the pitch just after 2.30pm. Nonetheless, the sport was unable to restart immediately because the players needed to warm up again.
Kavanagh had to examine the goalline technology was working, which livened up the group somewhat as they cheered each time he scored. The match got back underway at 2.40pm, meaning the delay was almost a full 40 minutes.
