Actually not bought on the way in which VAR is being carried out. Use of know-how is an effective factor however there’s one thing actually jarring a few system which supplies a choice like that penalty looking back – one barely anybody within the floor noticed or many (if any) gamers really appealed for.

One more instance of how horribly inconsistent VAR is. Saturday, equivalent incident with Alex Sandro in opposition to Milan wasn’t given. In the present day penalty is given vs Danny Rose. Whether or not it needs to be a penalty is irrelevant, the inconsistency with VAR is dreadful this season #TOTMCI

Not what VAR needs to be used for. By no means a transparent and apparent error. Justice executed… in my view,

This isn’t what VAR was bought as, even to those that have been strongly on board. This isn’t eradicating severe refereeing errors or decreasing controversy. It is merely shifting it from on-pitch to off-pitch.
