Brighton has taken to trolling Man Utd supporter Mark Goldbridge on TikTok

Manchester United supporter Mark Goldbridge has humorously responded to Brighton’s decision to post a video about him on TikTok following their victory over United on Saturday.

During the match, Rasmus Hojlund, making his Old Trafford debut, had a goal disallowed. The Norwegian forward, who was signed this summer for £72 million from Serie A side Atalanta, appeared to have scored a legitimate equalizer when he poked the ball past Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele.

In response to Brighton’s TikTok video, Mark Goldbridge, a prominent Manchester United supporter, jokingly referred to it as a “violation.” This humorous comment was likely in reference to the frustration felt by Manchester United fans following the team’s defeat.

But Marcus Rashford’s assist was adjudged to have crossed the line by VAR and the resulting goal was ruled out, much to the annoyance of streamer Mark Goldbridge, who called the decision “nonsense”.

“They’re guessing about that ball being out 100% because they don’t have the tech,” he said during the game. “So they should go with the goal.”

A day later andBrighton’s official TikTok accountaimed a not-so-subtle shot at Goldbridge, when they posted the infamous video of him saying “it’s not totally over the line” from a previous game of FIFA.

Goldbridge soon responded, saying: “Always been a vocal supporter of how good Brighton are and how well run they are. Their latest TikTok is a violation.”

Some United fans were convinced they had a legitimate goal chalked off incorrectly on Saturday afternoon, including YouTube personality Goldbridge.

“Tell me they haven’t guessed…. should have been given,” he said on Twitter alongside a picture of the ball. “If you’re unsure the onus should go with the attacking side.”

That being said, former Premier League referee Mike Dean says Hojlund’s goal was rightly ruled out by VAR despite the assistant “understandably” missing it.

Speaking onSoccer Saturday, Dean explained: “Out of play and in play is [a straightforward decision] but it is very, very tight and I can understand why the assistant referee hasn’t seen it.

“It took a lot of freeze frames forwards and backwards, forwards and backwards, but the ball had just gone out so the correct decision by the VAR.”
