Opinion: FA Should Apologise to Aubameyang After VAR Made this Decision in the Sou vs Che Match
The VAR have being a topic for discussion almost every match week since its introduction to the English Premier league.
Fans have not hidden their thoughts on the VAR in England with many calling for it to be scrapped entirely because of the controversial decision it has made most time which have cost most EPL teams. The technology has also been criticised for being biased, making different decision for similar events.
Once again, the video assistant referee(VAR) made another bad decision in the match between Southampton and Chelsea. Chelsea's Ngolo Kante appeared to have stamped Southampton midfielder, Moussa Djenepo on the shin when trying to recover an overhit ball. It was a clear foul even though there was nothing malicious in the tackle, it was still dangerous play and should have been cautioned.
The France midfielder went unpunished as Anthony Taylor decided to award only a freekick with no card issued to Kante. Talksport pundit Alvin Martin who was in the commentary box at Saint Mary suggested Kante escaped punishment because of his good reputation.
In a similar scenerio last season in the match between Crystal Palace and Arsenal, Aubameyang was sent off for a tackle on Max Meyer. The Arsenal captain was issued a yellow card initially which was changed to a red card after VAR intervention.
This latest VAR decision to ignore Kante's tackle on Djenepo once again shows how biased the technology is.
