VAR should have done better? Well Dana is back with another episode of the “Off the pitch” series. Dana will talk about many football aspects including the VAR controversy in Merseyside Derby and Pogba’s situation in Manchester.
David Coote left out from the Premier League referring squad
Do you know that David Coote was the main VAR referee in the MErseyside derby. He was the main man checking the VAR system. As it seems, Premier League authorities decided to leave him out from the list of VAR referees for next round. The next games of the Premier League will be played on the weekend. Fans created a petition and more than 10 000 football fans signed it.
It seems that Liverpool was robbed from the win against Everton. Teams played on Saturday and the match ended 2-2. Both teams scored two goals and got one point from the match. First of all, fans believe that David has not checked the moment on the VAR when Van Dijk got injured. Pickford played badly on Van Dijk and the defender could not continue playing. Keep in mind that Klopp announced that Van Dijk will be out for next 6 months. Defender may not play again this season – it means that Pickford’s play was unsportsmanlike.
At the same time, we should not forget the winner goal from Henderson. VAR checked and disallowed the goal. On the VAR check, it seems that goal has to be allowed – so VAR referee robbed Liverpool from a win. It would be a very important win because Livepool does not have a good start of the season.
Paul Pogba is not happy in Manchester?
As you may know, Ole is not satisfied with Pogba’s performance. In last performance, Paul Pogba could not make a big impact. Unfortunately to Manchester fans, Tottenham scored six goals against MU at Old Trafford.
Paul Pogba was not included in the starting line-up against PSG. it seems that Ole is not happy with Pogba and he may leave the team. Paul Pogba just dropped the hint about the departure from Manchester. French player may leave MU for Real Madrid. Experts believe that Zidane wants to sign Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe in summer of 2021.
