Linda Pizzuti, wife of principle owner of Liverpool FC John W. Henry, has criticised VAR after a controversial decision in the Reds’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
Diogo Jota’s elbow was adjudged to be in an offside position in the build-up to what appeared to be a legitimate goal by Roberto Firmino.
Taking to Instagram shortly after the full-time whistle, Pizzuti shared a screenshot of what was displayed on Sky Sports when the VAR incident was being discussed, with the caption ‘Shadows over VAR‘.
We’re with you on this one, Linda! We’re with you.
VAR and inept officials are killing football. FIFA, UEFA, lFAB and the FA are complicit in its death. RIP goal celebrations and the joy of the game.
VAR should be based on feet only, not elbows, not ears, not noses, nor anything else, a simple line that shows whether a player’s foot is offside. It doesn’t have to be as complicated as they are making it!😲 I doubt if there’s anyone that is going to disagree on this.
