The Video Assistant Referee was introduced to football in other to assist the Referee in some difficult situations and also correct the Referee when his decision goes wrong.
Many Footballers and fans have objected for the ban of the system because of the wrong decisions it have been making. The match between Manchester United and Atalanta witnessed another wrong decision by the VAR and the Referee after refusing to cancel Atalanta first goal for offside.
It was an entertaining match between Manchester United and Atalanta in the 3rd group stage match at Old Trafford Stadium.
Atalanta striker Pasalic was clearly offside before receiving the pass in the 15th of the game but the Referee and the VAR called it onside.
In Manchester City and Club Brugge match on Tuesday, a similar Incident happened and the goal was ruled offside. Rodri was in the same position Pasalic was before receiving the pass but Pasalic own was allowed to stand while Rodri's goal was ruled out for offside.
The Video Assistant Referee and the Center Referee were wrong to award the goal to Atlanta because both players were clearly in an offside position and the decision should have been against Atalanta.
The inconsistency of the Video Assistant Referee should be taken as a seriously because several complains have been made by the players, Coaches and the fans.
Manchester United scored came from behind to win the game through Cristiano Ronaldo's late goal. The Red Devils are currently leading the group with 6 points in 3 games.
Do you think the VAR should be banned?
