What Aubameyang Said About His Controversial Goal vs Man Utd

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not a big fan of the much-publicised VAR Technology.

His position on VAR was established during his interview with popular English media channel Sky Sports on Monday night short after his controversial goal won Arsenal a point during their Premier League clash with top four rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Aubameyang had to wait for VAR to confirm his equalizer for the Gunners in the second half of the game at the Theatre of Dreams.

After the game, Aubameyang said VAR takes the joy out of scoring.

He was flagged up for offside incorrectly by an overzealous assistant referee Scott Ledger but credit to him as he pressed on to dink the ball over Manchester United shot stopper David De Gea and into the back of the net.

The goal was given by centre referee Kevin Friend on the back of the check from VAR.

The goal was his seventh of the season in the Premier League and it also took his overall tally to eight goals for the new campaign.

He canceled out the first half strike from Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay to rescue a point for his team thus taking them to fourth spot on the league table.
