Mikel Arteta to push ahead with permanent Pablo Mari transfer as Arsenal shelve Axel Disasi interest Comment Advertisement The Spanish centre-back moved to the Emirates on an initial loan deal in January (Picture: Getty)Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has given the go-ahead to the club’s hierarchy to turn Pablo Mari’s loan stay at the Emirates into a permanent move, effectively ending interest in Axel Disasi.Central defence has become one of the key areas Arteta wishes to strengthen when the transfer window reopens, with the back-line continuing to leak goals despite an upturn in results prior to the Premier League season being suspended.The club also have a looming contract crisis in the heart of their defence, with David Luiz, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi all entering the final year of their respective deals.Sorry, this video isn’t available any more.Reports in France claimed recently that Arsenal had identified Reims centre-back Disasi as a potential option to bolster their backline, having made an approach in January.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTHowever The Athletic’s David Ornstein says the Gunners will not pursue a £13m deal for the 22-year-old, with Arteta adamant that he wants a left-footed centre-back – which Disasi is not.Instead, the Gunners will look a little closer to home, with Arteta happy to turn Mari’s loan move into a permanent deal for a fee of around £10m.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Riley keen on technology trial

first_img Riley, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme, did not offer any confirmation that Swarbrick will referee in the next round of Premier League matches, following the international break. “I’ve spoken to Neil quite a lot last night and this morning,” Riley said. “Referees accept at every level your performance will be scrutinised. Any referee, when you come off and you’ve made a mistake, you’re hurt, because you love the game. “What you want to do is make the correct decision and when you don’t there’s that feeling that you’ve let yourself down and let your colleagues down. “When they make mistakes, it’s our job to make sure they understand the mistakes, learn from it and they put it right in the next game.” West Brom captain Darren Fletcher had urged Swarbrick not to leap into the decision to brandish a red card. Fletcher told Match of the Day he had spoken to the referee and told him: ” Just make a sensible decision, it’s the first minute of the game, take your time. Take your time because this is a massive decision that impacts the rest of the game.” Fletcher added: ” I was really surprised when he showed the red card. I think a lot of our players were – and then to the wrong player as well, which we were trying to say as well, but it fell on deaf ears.” West Brom boss Tony Pulis last week urged the game to embrace technology and permit each team two appeals against decisions in each match. He wrote in West Brom’s programme for the match against Stoke: “A TV call back should be brought in where for 30 seconds the game could be held up whilst they decide if the original decision was correct or not. Two calls allowed during the game from both sides would be sufficient and I believe would help improve the great package that the Barclays Premier League provides for everybody all over the world.” Neil Swarbrick apologised on Saturday night for wrongly red-carding Gareth McAuley in the second minute of West Brom’s 3-0 loss at the Etihad Stadium, when it was team-mate Craig Dawson who committed a foul on Wilfried Bony. It followed last month’s Old Trafford mistaken identity muddle that saw Sunderland’s Wes Brown sent off by Roger East for bringing down Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao, when the offence in question was committed by John O’Shea. Press Association Referees’ chief Mike Riley has called for video technology to be trialled in the wake of another blunder that saw the wrong West Brom player sent off at Manchester City. Asked why referees do not listen to players’ on-field explanations of such circumstances, Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) general manager Riley said: “The referee has got to make his decision based on what he thinks he’s seen. His instincts often lead him to trust his judgement. “It’s one of the areas that would lend itself to technology. “The game has stopped and there’s time before we restart the game to have a look at something. That would provide the concrete evidence that would get the decision right. “I think football as a whole has to look at how we can enhance refereeing performances through the use of technology. “We’ve been open-minded to things like the goal-decision system which has made a great difference and a great benefit to referees in the Premier League. “We need to see what other technology can be used to get refereeing decisions more accurate.” He added: “W e need to test it in live football. U ntil we do that, we won’t know the impact on the game. “Technology can be helpful but we don’t want to destroy the fabric of the game, the fast-flowing spectacle we all love.” last_img read more
