New footage of Juventus’ disallowed 94th minute goal surfaces showing major VAR blunder | Football | Sport
The 55-year-old said: “Was it a very bad performance? No, you say so, you see games, but you don’t watch them. The opening 20 minutes were very good. Then we conceded this goal from a wrong interpretation of Cuadrado.
“I never talk to referees after games, a goal was disallowed and it’s a fact. The only thing is that I’d like to watch the video again. Antonio Candreva is close to the corner and we haven’t seen that video, what if he keeps everyone onside? We don’t have that video, nobody has it, so I don’t know.
“However, referees must be left alone, the protagonists are the footballers. We have 10-15 good referees in Italy.”
The use of VAR has since been widely criticised on social media. Former England forward Gary Lineker quote-tweeted a video of the scenes with a reference to the often maligned VAR use in the Premier League. He said: “He was latterly proven to be onside. It’s not just here that VAR sometimes gets it badly wrong.”
