Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Tottenham has been the subject of much VAR controversy as Edinson Cavani’s goal was not allowed.
With about 10 minutes left from the first half in the Red Devils clash with Spurs, there was still no result.
United, however, thought they had opened their account when Paul Pogba donated an excellent pass to Cavani. The Uruguayan avoided the opposing defense and shot into the net.
However, a VAR glance was required after Scott McTominay had hit Son Heung-Min in the face with his arm in motion.
Although the contact was easy, he was judged to be a foul.
Moments later, Son outscored Tottenham.
What was the reaction?
Sky Sports experts Roy Keane and Micah Richards were both surprised by the decision.
“It is shameful. “This is no longer football.” “It simply came to our notice then. “I no longer know our game.”
“It is an absolutely ridiculous decision. “This is never a foul.”
Meanwhile, Keane said: “I’m surprised. If it was a foul [në aksionin e ‘golit të United]”We all have to go home.”
“It’s embarrassing for a player to spin like that. “This cannot be a foul.”
Jamie Redknapp was similarly surprised by the VAR decision.
“What should you do, run with your arms down close by? The boy tries to cross it and he puts his arm out. This is what you do in football. “You are always trying to use your arms as a moving tool,” he said. “It is never a foul. It’s ridiculous”.
Why was the goal canceled?
A statement from PGMOL, which aired on Sky Sports, said: “This was not part of McTominay’s natural movement and was careless.”
However, Manchester United reversed the result, to win 3-1 against Spurs in the 31st week of the Premier League. /Telegraph/
