"It Is Embarrassing. This Is Not Football,' Pundits Blasts VAR Decision Against Manchester United

Manchester United may have gone on to win against Tottenham Hotspurs by 3 goals to one but that didn't stop Pundits and fans from pointing out the controversies that surrounded the match. Manchester United thought they had taken the lead through Edison Cavani's superb finish on the 33rd minute but their celebrations were short lived. The VAR picked an incident in the build up to Cavani's goal and after reviews, centre referee Chris Kavanagh penalised Scott McTominay for fouling Heung Min Son.

That incident invited a lot if discussion during the half time break. Two Sky sport pundits couldn't hide their frustrations at the disallowed goal. Former Manchester City player and Sky sport pundits Michael Richards together with Manchester United legend Roy Keane slammed the VAR for what they refereed to as a bizarre decision.

Speaking to Sky sport Keane said; "I’m amazed. If this is a foul, we should all go home. I think it’s bizarre, for a player like Son just to roll about like that, I think it’s embarrassing." Michael Richards conquered with Roy Keane sentiment saying, "It is embarrassing. This is not football."

What do is your view on the referee's decision to deny Manchester United Cavani's opener ?
