Charlie Austin has just given the ANGRIEST post-match interview we’ve ever seen

The Southampton striker had a goal wrongly ruled-out for offside in their draw with Watford

Charlie Austin is not a happy bunny.

The Southampton forward was fuming with the Saints 1-1 draw with Watford today, having seen his goal in the second-half wrongly ruled-out for offside before the opposition scored their equaliser.

In one of the worst decisions you’ll see this weekend, Austin’s goal was chalked off when his strike was incorrectly deemed to have gone in off of teammate Maya Yoshida, who was in an offside position.

Take a close look at the second picture below.

In his post-match interview, the 29-year-old certainly didn’t hold back.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Austin was clearly angry with the officials, saying: “It’s ridiculous, they shouldn’t be in the game.

“We scored a perfectly good goal that was ruled out for offside. The officials cost us two points. They said it was offside, that is a joke.”

Austin also mentioned how the lack of VAR in the league was causing these sorts of problems.

He said: “People go on about VAR, they clearly need help. If this is the best, most-watched league in the world then give them all the help they need. It is a joke.

“Sure there are many positives, we worked hard, we deserved three points and we would have got that had we not been let down by the official.”

Give the full interview a watch below. 

With the amount of media training professional players have these days, these types of post-game interviews are usually fairly predictable, with dull and calculated answers often given to the questions thrown at them.

So it’s somewhat refreshing to see a Premier League player tell us all how he’s really feeling.

And quite honestly, we completely understand it.

How frustrating must it be to see such an important goal just taken away like that?
