[Sport] EPL: Enough is enough – Arteta demands VAR answers as Arsenal lose to Everton


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has said he has had enough of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The Spaniard was left fuming after they were denied a penalty, before a Bernd Leno error saw the Gunners lose 1-0 to Everton on Friday.

Leno allowed Richarlison’s effort through his legs, but before then, the Brazilian forward conceded a penalty for a foul on Dani Ceballos.

However, VAR determined Nicolas Pepe was offside in the build-up by the slightest of margins.

“This has been building up. Enough is enough. Today I have had enough.

“We’ve had many of them that nobody explains. It affects a lot of people, our job and most importantly our football club.

“What they [the match officials] do is behind the telephone. That’s what I cannot understand.

“We were the better team but there are certain decisions that we can’t control. To disallow a penalty 15 seconds before – [we had] eight or nine touches [after Nicolas Pepe was offside] – I saw it 10 times and I don’t get it. It can be taken the way they want. Zero control. Somebody has to explain that,” Arteta said.
