Video assistant referees (VARs) should be used more often, says former Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish

I couldn’t believe it when they said it was a soft decision. Manchester United Football Club “It was a foul all day.” VAR should be doing its job at that point.” Odegaard smacked him in the knee. “The one that was the strangest was Eriksen getting tackled unfairly,” he told Football Insider. Despite widespread disagreement over whether Martinelli’s strike should have counted, McLeish is certain that the correct decision was made. In the aftermath of Sunday’s clash, the incident has sparked much debate. Antony, who made his debut for Erik ten Hag’s team, scored shortly before halftime. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t believe it when you’re traveling at a certain speed and trying to manipulate the ball and you get hit.” Despite learned pundits who have played at the highest level saying it wasn’t a foul, the referee made an excellent decision. Alex McLeish, former manager of Scotland and Aston Villa, has said that the VAR intervention that ruled out a Gabriel Martinelli goal for Arsenal against Manchester United on Sunday was a “great decision.” Martinelli’s goal was disallowed after Martin Odegaard was adjudged to have fouled United midfielder Christian Eriksen in the buildup, keeping the game scoreless. “He had hit Eriksen and they went on to score the goal, let’s be honest, the cameras don’t lie.” “It’s a foul even if you think it’s soft.” The Red Devils won 3-1 at Old Trafford to extend their unbeaten streak to four games, but they could have faced a deficit to overcome in the early stages if not for the actions of the video assistant. It’s a foul to hit someone in the side of the knee as he’s about to execute a pass.
