“If we have VAR to help, let’s start using it correctly, these mistakes can define the future of clubs!”
be in sports The Keys couple and Gray also gave their verdict on the incident.
First Sky sports The duo ridiculed United’s recent penalty shootout record, after six shots from the spot this season. By the way, Leicester sits on top of that particular table with 10.
Then the keys claimed both Marcus rashford and Anthony Martial were “serial offenders” who “would fall if sneezed”.
He said (through the Manchester Evening News): “I think it is impossible for a team to be rewarded that way, so often. These two [Martial and Rashford] They are serial offenders to me.
Cole: Penalize the correct call
“They get close when you sneeze on them. I’m a bit surprised to see that Fernandes has only won two. I thought it would be more successful than that. It is impossible. “
The comments left United fans furious. But former United striker Andy Cole said the decision to award a Pogba foul penalty against Villa was the right one.
He said Sky sports: I don’t think so (Pogba stumbling). I think the problem today is that with the slightest touch, anyone will fall.
