David De Gea Obviously Isn’t Sure About VAR as it Rules Out Juan Mata Goal

David De Gea Obviously Isn’t Sure About VAR as it Rules Out Juan Mata Goal

David de Gea obviously isn’t sure about VAR after it ruled out Juan Mata‘s goal for Manchester United against Huddersfield.

The Spanish goalkeeper is at home watching the game as Sergio Romero takes his place as the club’s Cup goalie.

So de Gea was in a good position to see all of the TV coverage of the Mata goal, which was initially ruled good before VAR overturned the decision of the linesman.

In BT Sport’s coverage, crooked lines appeared as part of the VAR replay – and that’s led to a lot of criticism for the new concept in football.

It’s since been confirmed that straight lines were used by the video referee, but, even with those, it’s not absolutely clear that Mata is offside.

And, just like the rest of us, de Gea was very confused:

I think we can get exactly what he’s thinking from that one emoji.

The video referee may now be hoping that United can go on and get a few more goals so the controversial decision isn’t as significant by the end of the match.

However, you’d expect the debate to rage over VAR after the game, calling into question whether or not it’s ready for competitive football yet.
