If Gary Neville is to be believed, Marcus Rashford’s opening goal against Liverpool should have been disallowed.
Neville, who considers himself the greatest pundits of all times, concluded that VAR’s inability to overruled referee Martin Atkinson’s call that Divock Origi had not been fouled in the build-up wasn’t fair.
Neville agreed with Jurgen Klopp while he was commentating for Sky Sports:
I’ve had this problem with VAR all season, it’s a foul.
Manchester United don’t care, Klopp is absolutely livid but he will be with his team too. Manchester United have been better, they’ve been faster but there is controversy.
On VAR, Neville continued:
They’ve backed themselves into a position. We spent two or three hours there and they told us they won’t send the referee to the screen that is in between the dugouts.
I really thought he was going to overturn it. It’s one from behind where you see the toe-poke go into his calf. This is the angle, just watch, he kicks his shin.
Man United were able to stall Liverpool’s winning streak thanks to the goal.
