Leicester City v Wolves: Footage appears to show disagreement in VAR room during match


If you were to ask 100 random football fans whether they’d keep VAR, it’s safe to assume that the vast majority would argue to scrap it.

The technology has caused constant problems since its controversial introduction over the past couple of seasons.

We’re seeing decisions which leave everyone scratching their heads in disbelief on a weekly basis at the moment.

On Saturday, for example, Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford had a goal disallowed because his arm was in an offside position as he called for the ball.

And on Sunday, Leicester City were awarded a dubious penalty when Dennis Praet’s cross was judged by VAR official Stuart Attwell to have connected with Max Kilman’s arm.

Referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot following VAR’s intervention and Jamie Vardy converted to give Leicester the lead at the King Power Stadium.

At half-time, Sky Sports showed fascinating footage of the VAR room at Stockley Park.

“This is Neil Swarbrick in the white t-shirt, who’s in charge of the VAR department, maybe having that conversation with Stuart Attwell - what do you make of that?” Sky Sports presenter Dave Jones asked Jamie Carragher.


The Liverpool legend responded: “They must still be having the debate we’re having about the running action. I think he might be telling him he made a mistake. Why would you go in there and use that running action if you think they got it right?”

It certainly looks like they were having a disagreement of some sorts, much to the disbelief of football fans on social media…

Carragher then showed why it would have been impossible for Kilman, who was running at speed, to pull his left arm out of the way…

When will the VAR madness end?
