There have been a number of controversial penalty decisions in the Premier League in recent weeks with a stricter approach taken towards handball decisions.
Spurs’ Eric Dier was penalised by the new law, which was in force across Europe last season, at the weekend with Callum Wilson scoring from the spot to earn Newcastle a stoppage-time point despite Mourinho’s men dominating the match.
The Portuguese tactician refused to discuss the decision at length post-match but made his feelings towards the rule clear.
He said: “I don’t want to comment, I just don’t want to. I don’t have a message [for the International Football Association Board], I don’t have a message.”
Told that Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson believes the handball rule is ruining football, Moutinho added: “Mr Roy is our boss, the man with more experience, the man with the age, the man in the Premier League I always consider the eldest one, the boss, he has the status, the knowhow, respected by everyone. I live on him.”
And Solskjaer said: “You can discuss it all day long, but we need some clarity on what’s a foul and what’s a penalty.
“Now it looks like you can chip a ball up into someone’s hand, like what happened to us against Crystal Palace, and Victor Lindelof got a penalty against him.
