The controversies behind the VAR has continued to rage on. Many teams have complained on the use of VAR because of some bizarre decisions that have been made by the technology. Manchester United have had a fair share of both luck and bad luck when it comes to VAR.
Yesterdays incident is one of those that have favored the Red Devils this season. In their match against Fulham, Cavani scored what can be considered a contender for goal of the season when he lobbed the goalkeeper from almost the half way line.
Replays shows that he was offside when the ball was played by De Gea. Fernandes was thought to have diverted the ball into Cavani's path to score but replays also shows he did not touch the ball. VAR was consulted to see if Cavani was offside but it declared the goal as valid.
Fernandes has however come out and claimed that they were lucky with the goal. He said he did not touch the ball but the referee insisted that he did. As a result, the beautiful goal stood and United were able to draw the game to guarantee second spot.
Does VAR favor certain teams? Should it be removed?
