The former Manchester United defender says the Premier League is “failing a lot” with the use of technology.
Gary Neville criticized the incorrect use of Var in the Premier League after technology returned to be the protagonist on Thursday in England.
In the match between Manchester United and Aston Villa, Villains coach Dean Smith was furious after the Red Devils received a more than dubious penalty after a foul inside Ezri Konsa’s area on Bruno Fernandes.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho, Tottenham’s coach, was also upset after the field and cabin officials let a possible foul pass on Harry Kane in the Spurs’ goalless draw against Bournemouth.
On his official Twitter account, Neville expressed his disagreement at the continued refereeing rulings and the misuse of technology.
“About the VAR. Send the referees to the screens for God’s sake! The ‘we know best’ that occurs in Europe is seriously failing,” Neville tweeted. “The referees who are off the field are scared to death to change decisions of their colleagues on the court,” he added.
On VAR. Send the Ref to the screens for goodness sake! The “we know better” than Europe way is failing badly. The officials off-site are frightened to death to overrule on-site colleagues.
