UEFA Finally Reveals If VAR Was Right To Award Penalty To Man United Against PSG

Uefa has backed the video assistant referee system’s decision to award Manchester United an injury-time penalty that knocked Paris St-Germain out of the Champions League. Diogo Dalot’s shot hit Presnel Kimpembe’s arm but was only deemed a spot-kick after the VAR intervention. Injured PSG forward Neymar called the decision a “disgrace”. But Uefa said the distance the ball covered was “not short” and Kimpembe’s arm was “not close” to his body. Based on this, it added that, “the impact could therefore not be unexpected” and “the defender’s body [was made] bigger thus resulting in the ball being stopped from travelling in the direction of the goal. “The referee, therefore, awarded a penalty kick. “Given that the referee did not recognise the incident clearly during live play [referred to as se...

‘Man United Penalty Decision Is A Disgrace’- Neymar

The decision to award Manchester United a penalty in the 94th minute of their win over Paris St-Germain in the Champions League was a “disgrace”, says the French club’s forward Neymar.

Mark Clattenburg Finally Speaks On Why VAR Awarded Man United Late Penalty Against PSG

Former Premier League referee, Mark Clattenburg, has claimed that referee Damir Skomina awarded Manchester United a late penalty against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night, because of new UEFA rules.

United, who lost 2-0 at home in the first leg, won 3-1 on the night to progress on away goals.

‘I Don’t Want VAR In The Premier League’- Chelsea Boss Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has again hit out at the use of video assistant referees, and says he does not want VAR introduced to the Premier League next season. England’s top division is following in the footsteps of many of its European counterparts, including La Liga and the Bundesliga, by introducing the system from next season. Sarri – who experienced VAR in action during his time with Napoli in Serie A – was critical of the system following Harry Kane’s controversial winner over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. The referee in charge of VAR for that game, Chris Kavanagh, will officiate Chelsea’s match against Newcastle on Saturday, but Sarri said: “The problem is not the referee. “The problem, for me, is that they are not ready to use VAR.

Tottenham Boss Mauricio Pochettino Blast VAR Despite Victory Over Chelsea In Carabao Cup

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes “English referees are not able to use VAR” while Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said he was “unhappy to win like this” after the system awarded Harry Kane the penalty that won the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
