Tottenham legend Hoddle rages: No way a penalty!

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle slammed the decision to award a first-minute penalty to Liverpool in Saturday's Champions League final.

Mohamed Salah's successful spot-kick set Liverpool on their way to a 2-0 win.

Hoddle fumed: "No way was it a penalty. (Moussa) Sissoko was pointing when he was running back, looking at something up the pitch, it's like he was coaching and saying 'take the runner'.

"If he was trying to stop the cross, he would have out both hands up. It hit him in the chest and rolled along his arm. If that is a penalty, we will have 100 of them per game."
