Sadio Mane has great goal disallowed v Watford following more VAR madness

Liverpool FC v Watford FC - Premier League

If football fans had their way, VAR would surely be scrapped right now.

The vast majority of supporters are sick and tired of the new technology already following a host of baffling decisions this season.

Introduced into the Premier League at the start of the campaign, we haven’t gone a single week without some form of controversial incident involving VAR.

We’ve only had one top-flight game so far this weekend and, once again, VAR is the big talking point.

Sadio Mane thought he’d doubled Liverpool’s advantage with a fine header from a Xherdan Shaqiri cross - but referee Andre Marriner disallowed the goal for offside following a VAR review.

Watch Mane’s goal here…

A great goal, right?

We then saw the lines on BT Sport and the in-form Senegalese winger still appeared to be onside.

But the goal was apparently ruled out because Mane’s hip - yes, his hip - was about a millimetre offside.

Check it out…


That’s apparently offside these days.

This latest incident has sparked yet more backlash from football fans on social media - and not just from Liverpool supporters.

When even Manchester United fans are defending a decision that's gone against Liverpool, you know something's wrong.

It’s surely time for the Premier League to have a serious review about the way VAR is used.

This surely isn’t the future of football.
