Sylvan Distin refusing to blame referee

sylvain_distin_1471764cSylvain Distin has refused to blame the ref despite having what looked like a perfectly good derby wining goal ruled out on Sunday.

The France defender looked to have won all three points for David Moyes’ men in a low key derby at Anfield but his headed goal was ruled out by official Michael Oliver.

The ref claimed that striker Victor Anichebe had fouled home keeper Pepe Reina but even the most ardent Reds fan would find it hard to agree with him.

Despite the disappointment Distin refused to blame the ref and instead said Everton should take the positives from the match.

He told the Echo: “We’ve been disallowed a goal that was perfectly right, but that happens in football and we have to accept it.

“I’m not blaming the referee or judging him or anything.

“I can understand because we all make mistakes – we make mistakes as players, they make mistakes as referees.

“I’m just a little bit disappointed but it’s still a good result.”
