ITV Commentator Clive Tyldesley Wants Lie Detector Tests Brought Into Football

ITV Commentator Clive Tyldesley Wants Lie Detector Tests Brought Into Football

We’ve heard of some pretty barmy ideas put forward to revolutionise football, but ITV commentator Clive Tyldesley might have well and truly taken the biscuit with his latest suggestion.

The broadcaster was in his usual spot in the gantry for this afternoon’s Confederations Cup tie between Portugal and Mexico, and for one of the first times ever, fans witnessed FIFA’s new Video Assistant Referee play a major part in the result.

The match ended 2-2, but in the first-half Pepe had what looked like a perfectly good goal ruled-out for being offside, and not too long after, Tyldesley suggested we bring lie detector tests into international football.

At the time, he said live on ITV: “Well, the next technological advancement should be a lie detector for when a defender is pleading his innocence.”

His co-commentator Danny Higginbotham didn’t really say much by way of a response, but, of course, fans on social media had heard the suggestion loud and clear:

 

To be honest, it’s not for us, Clive.

But what do you think? Is there any way at all we could bring in some sort of lie detector test?

Let us know in the comments section below…
