EPL – Guardiola Slammed Over Comment On VAR

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has come under serious scrutiny following his comment on the much talked about Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Technology.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss was heavily criticized by ex-Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan in his column with The Sun.

According to Simon Jordan, Guardiola complains about VAR only when it doesn’t favor his team.

Pep Guardiola complained about VAR at the weekend in his post-match press conference after the Premier League home game with Tottenham Hotspur.

Guardiola and Manchester City were infuriated after VAR chalked off the late goal from substitute Gabriel Jesus for handball.

The goal would have given Manchester City a 3-2 win over Spurs but the decision meant that the two teams shared a four-goal salvo.

After the game, Pep Guardiola described the use of VAR to disallow the goal as tough before pointing out that the same situation repeated itself against the same opponent in the quarterfinals of the Champions League last season.

Manchester City hosted Spurs in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal tie and they had a last-minute strike from Raheem Sterling chalked off by VAR for offside.

The goal would have taken Manchester City to the last four of the competition.
