An Emotional Charlie Austin Fully Loses It In Post Match Interview And He's Spot On

Southampton striker Charlie Austin gave a memorable post-match interview after the Saints conceded a late equaliser against Watford.

With the hosts 1-0 up at St Mary's, Austin had a goal chalked off to make it 2-0 after it was deemed 'offside' by the officials - and the decision proved crucial as Jose Holebas' strike denied Mark Hughes' side a crucial win and meant the points were shared.

And Austin did not hold back in his post-match interview with the BBC. His voice cracked with emotion and he'll likely get a hefty fine coming his way, but the former QPR striker was full of passion and honesty throughout.

Often these types of interviews can be very predictable as footballers throw around the same cliches and don't really answer questions properly.

But Austin was overcome with frustration and simply couldn't help but let it all out.

Speaking to BBC, he said: "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.

"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.

"We feel like we have been let down. I started well, worked hard to be up 1-0 at half-time and we stuck to the plan.

"We didn't get beat but we should have gotten away with three points going into the international break.

"The performance was there, we can take that away and we should manage the game. I'm angry is what it is, we should have won 2-0."

The 29-year old's strong opinions have become the talk of the town on social media, with reactions aplenty. Some were quick to jump in and accuse Austin of being a 'moaner', while others praised him for 'wearing his heart on his sleeve'.

Others were more preoccupied with how much his fine will be...
