VAR may have made a big error which cost Newcastle the game against Tottenham

Posted by

Newcastle United fans may be Justified in feeling rubbed against Tottenham yesterday as VAR failed to spot a headbutt by Spurs midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur.

The Uruguay international joined Tottenham in January and has performed well for Antonio Conte’s side, though he showed a nasty aspect of his game here…

Watching this footage back, it’s clear that Bentancur aims a sly headbutt at Allan Saint-Maximin, which wasn’t spotted.

If it had been, Bentancur would surely have been given his marching orders, which could’ve completely changed the game with the score at 1-1.

  1. Yeah. So what about the freekick with New castle players standing in an offsidw position that interfere with Lloris unable to see the ball.

  2. What absolute rot,Firstly Saint Maxim tried to come head to head with Bentancur rather than the opposite.Rightly both got yellows however Joelinton intervened and should have been red carded as should Burn for the foul as last man on Kane but WHO cares 1 day later VAR should have also corrected Atkinson for the Schaefer free kick as Son won the ball ,it was not a Foul .
