Manchester City supporter buys club shirt with 'F**k VAR' on the back

VAR has been against City in the past few months

VAR has not been Manchester City's friend in the past few months.

Raheem Sterling thought he had sent his side to the Champions League semi-finals with a last-gasp goal against Tottenham in April.

But the celebrations were cut short after VAR ruled out the goal for offside.

VAR has now been introduced in the Premier League and it's already causing controversy.

And it's already managed to cost City.

Gabriel Jesus thought he's scored in the last minute against Spurs to preserve City's winning run.

But, VAR cut short City's celebrations once again as it was ruled out for a dubious Aymeric Laporte handball.

City aren't the only team that has been on the wrong end of the new technology.

In fact, a number of teams have even began chanting 'F*** VAR' in protest against it's use.

Man City fans may have the most reason to be against VAR and now one supporter has gone to extreme lengths to show his displeasure with it.

@Citizen_baker unveiled his new City shirt on Twitter, which has 'F*** VAR' on the back.

Seems a very odd way to show your opposition to VAR, but each to their own.

You may think that the shirt is fake, but the fan seems determined to prove that it isn't.

One Twitter user called his shirt fake, to which he replied: 'Someone doesn't know me'.


He also claims he brought the shirt for just £13 from China.

He's been getting a fair bit of stick online, which is perhaps understandable. But he seems to be pleased with his purchase nevertheless.

While this Man City fan doesn't think too much of VAR, Pep Guardiola doesn't share the same feelings.

It wiped out their winner against Spurs for the second time in a matter of months but Guardiola insisted he still liked VAR after the game.

“I like VAR because it provides justice,” he said, per Goal. “This is the first season. It helps to be more fair to referees. I think in the end it will be right.

“I had the same opinion from the beginning. I support the technology. But during the process, it needs time to adjust.

“It’s emotional when you score a goal in that way. His [Jesus’] reaction was normal. He was not upset. The reaction from the Tottenham players showed that they didn’t know why it was disallowed. They accepted it was a goal.

“The reaction of our players was normal. We have to keep going. It’s done. We have to move forward.”
