Mills reacts as Bournemouth consider lawsuit

Danny Mills has claimed Aston Villa will “consider themselves very, very fortunate” regarding the goal-line technology error against Sheffield United in June.

Sky Sports revealed that the Cherries board will meet later this week to discuss taking legal action against Hawk-Eye.

Hawk-Eye apologised for a goal-line technology system error after Villa goalkeeper Orjan Nyland carried the ball into his own side netting against Sheffield United.

Ultimately, even if the Blades had beaten Villa 1-0 that day, Dean Smith’s side would have beaten the drop on goals scored.

When asked by Football Insider if the incident could be seen as a decisive factor in Bournemouth’s relegation, Mills said: “I can argue it both ways. 

“Once that was done and dusted there was still nine games to go. It was not the last game of the season.

‘People might be a bit aggrieved but it happened. There has been some rubbish VAR decisions all season long. Technology has not sorted things out.

“Yes, goal-line technology is supposedly black and white and we all thought it was perfect and Villa will consider themselves very, very fortunate given the circumstances.”
