Paul Scholes, a former player for Manchester United, has criticized VAR for denying Arsenal's opening goal during their Sunday Premier League match against the Red Devils.
Scholes said that Gabriel Martinelli’s disallowed goal during the 3-1 defeat was "ridiculous".
Brazil international Martinelli thought he had put the visitors ahead in the first half, only for referee Paul Tierney to overturn the goal via VAR.
Scholes said of Premier League production. "I think it’s very soft." It’s his interpretation of the foul. He is ten yards away. He doesn’t think it’s a foul. Go to somebody else and see if he has a different opinion.
“It’s ridiculous; it should never have come back." I don’t think it is foul. I think they are a little unlucky there at Arsenal. "
The defeat at Old Trafford ended Mikel Arteta’s hundred percent start to the season and put Manchester United three points clear at the summit.
