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

0

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.
