‘VAR is also useless!’… Referee body admits “Arsenal conceded a mistake”

“Arsenal’s conceding scene was an obvious misjudgment.”

Premier League leaders Arsenal lost two points due to an apparent mistake by the VAR referee.

Arsenal drew 1-1 in the 2022/23 season Premier League round 23 match against Brentford held at the Emirates Stadium in London, England on the 12th (Korean time). Arsenal, who added 1 point, maintained their lead in the league with 16 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, with 51 points.

A draw was an unsatisfactory result for Arsenal. Arsenal, who had been harassing Brentford with a 7-3 share throughout the game, took the lead with Leandro Trossar’s goal in the 21st minute of the second half, but 8 minutes later, Ivan Toni equalized.

The point loss scene was a problem. The position of Christian Nögor, who recorded the assist, was offside, but this scene was not properly pointed out on the match screen. Lee Mason, who was in charge of VAR that day, also judged that there was no problem and recognized it as Brentford’s goal.

Arsenal are on a two-game winless streak in the league. The gap with second place Manchester City is six points. It is a somewhat burdensome situation for Arsenal, who meets Man City in the next round. 메이저사이트

After the match, manager Mikel Arteta also burst into anger.

According to The Athletic, Arteta said, “Even now (that scene) was obviously offside,” and “I hope for more accurate cameras and decisions. It’s already too late.

Professional Game Refereeing Organization (PGMOL) also admitted that it was an obvious mistake by VAR.

According to the Daily Mail and SkySpo, PGMOL’s Chris Foy said, “After Tony’s goal, the VAR would have reviewed the goal scene.” We reviewed whether it was obstruction, and we conceded the goal.”

However, he said, “In the later situation, the position of Nogorgor, who crossed to Tony, was offside.” “VAR made the mistake of not drawing the line. This is a human error. If they had drawn the line, it would have been judged as offside.” claimed.
