Former FIFA Referee Surprised By VAR Controversial Moments Against Manchester United

Manchester United have hardly been done twice by VAR in 8 days.

In their last premier league match against West broom, the red devils were denied a very obvious foul that resulted to West Broom scoring.


West Broom striker Mbaye appeared have covered Lindelof’s whole face with his hand which denied the defender a clear vision.

However the referee with the assistance of VAR reviewed the situation and chose not to award a foul thus allowing the goal to stand.

How this was not a foul I can’t tell. This incident denied the red devils two very crucial points as they went on to draw one one.

Yesterday, the same VAR came under scrutiny against for going against Manchester united and not awarding Manchester united a penalty when Chelsea Hudson Odoi clearly handled the ball in the area.

Mark Clattenburg who is a very experienced former FIFA referee having refereed 2016 UEFA Champions League Final and the UEFA Euro 2016 Final has reviewed yesterday incident and has given his verdict.

He said: ” I am amazed Manchester United were not awarded a penalty in the first half for the clear handball by Callum Hudson-Odoi.

“The Chelsea player’s arm was up in an unnatural position and the ball hit his hand. VAR Chris Kavanagh thought referee Stuart Attwell had missed a clear penalty so he gave him the opportunity to review it at his pitch-side monitor. How Attwell did not then point to the spot, having been shown the same angles that we were, is a mystery.”

Its now 4 points that has been lost by the red devils in two EPL matches as a result of VAR controversies.
