Fans fume as ‘absolute joke’ VAR takes more than TWO minutes to award City penalty

first_imgFANS were left fuming after it took more than two minutes for VAR to award Manchester City a penalty after Serge Aurier fouled Sergio Aguero.The delay in the decision was not received well, causing more debate on whether the technology is good for the game.After awarding the penalty, Ilkay Gundogan stepped up and missed with Hug Lloris saving his Spurs teammates.There were calls for another penalty immediately after, with VAR checking a potential foul from Lloris on Raheem Sterling but nothing was given. VAR not fit for purpose it’s killing the game . 2 minutes to go back for a decision farce https://t.co/eoPufhF5dk— Chris Mcgrath (@yehkunning) February 2, 2020 Regardless of the fact that both decisions were right, how is VAR is making the game better? Over 2 minutes to for a foul to be reviewed, anything could have happened in that time and wouldnt have counted. Trust refs and accept mistakes. VAR is not making the game better.#VAR— Wayneatron (@WPage14) February 2, 2020 VAR is a farce, what would happen if we scored during those minutes from the foul to the VAR check? The officials in Stockley Park need to be communicating to Mike Dean straight away.— Kalan Coupar (@KSCMedia) February 2, 2020center_img Imagine a goal had been scored in that two minutes it took to work out it was a penalty.
