Following his team’s failure to score a late winner against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League on Wednesday, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte criticized the video assistant referee.
Conte claimed that VAR significantly hurt the outcome of the game.
Harry Kane, the captain and leading scorer for Tottenham, thought he had given the home team the victory when he swept in Emerson Royal’s cross in the final second of stoppage time.
However, after a thorough investigation into the events leading up to the goal, VAR determined that the England captain had scored from an offside position, and the goal was disallowed.
A defeated Conte told BT Sport after the game, “I think the ball was in front of Kane and the goal is a goal. Yeah. I don’t comprehend the line that was used. It is very challenging to offer commentary on this choice.
“VAR is seriously harming the game. I want to find out if a major team is prepared to forbid this kind of goal in a different stadium. I’m curious about this.
a great deal of injustice. I dislike situations like this. I don’t see any promising signs.
