Newcastle helmsman Steve Bruce criticized the VAR. The Forty mentor believes that the referee’s video assistance system should have helped the referee in the field react to the episode with Sheffield United’s forward Billy Sharp.
On the eve of Newcastle lost to Sheffield with a score of 0: 1, Bruce is confident that Blades’ striker Sharpe should have been sent off for a rough tackle in the 80th minute.
“It’s just an outrageous situation. Sharpe played a red card, but the judge did not even watch this episode on the screen. VAR is ridiculous. Every week there are fewer people who like this system. VAR spoils football “, – stated Bruce.
