VAR Should Be Scraped Now! Lineker Describes The VAR As A Cheat Code

Published

Gary Lineker has described VAR as ‘tedious’ after Arsenal had a goal ruled out against Manchester United in their Premier League match on Sunday.

The Gunners thought they had taken an early lead at Old Trafford when Martin Odegaard expertly played in Gabriel Martinelli, who confidently finished past David De Gea.

However, VAR advised referee Paul Tierney that Odegaard had fouled Christian Eriksen in the buildup and Arsenal’s goal was ultimately ruled out. Manchester United went on to win the game 3-1, thanks largely to a brace from Marcus Rashford.

However, questionable officiating was once again the main talking point after the encounter and former World Cup Golden Boot winner Lineker has clearly had enough.

Following the Gunners’ disallowed goal, the ex-England striker tweeted:

 

“Here we go again. VAR is so tedious.”

The tweet came in response to several controversial incidents over the weekend in the Premier League. West Ham manager David Moyes was furious that his side were denied a late equalizer at Chelsea after Jarrod Bowen was penalized for an incredibly soft infringement on Eduoard Mendy.

 

Meanwhile, Newcastle supporters were angered by the decision to disallow their winning goal against Crystal Palace. Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister’s superb strike against Leicester was also ruled out after a check for offside that lasted nearly four minutes.
