Tottenham Hotspur received a controversial VAR ruling over the weekend against Manchester United following an apparent handball by Cristian Romero.


Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League victory over Manchester United featured another contentious VAR decision that favored Ange Postecoglou’s team. Spurs defeated Erik ten Hag’s team 2-0, due to Pape Matar Sarr’s first goal for the club and a lucky Lisandro Martinez own goal.


At times, the north Londoners rode their luck, with Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and Casemiro squandering good openings. Tottenham, on the other hand, capitalized on their second-half domination with their first win of the season.


However, if United had their way, the outcome may have been drastically different. Cristian Romero’s unintentional handball diverted Alejandro Garnacho’s attempt wide in the first half. Replays showed the attempt striking Romero’s hand within the penalty area, but VAR did not overrule the ruling of referee Michael Oliver.


In the days since, the judgment has been highly criticized, but veteran Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has claimed that VAR made the correct call by not awarding United a penalty. When asked if the PGMOL will apologize to the Red Devils, Gallagher stated, “I would say 100% no because my feeling is that he was so close [to Garnacho when the shot was taken].”


“We discussed handball last week, and I believe it will be extremely difficult.” The more you drill down into it to get it correct, the more problems it brings, one of which is that the arm is out, is this an appropriate position? Is it related to the shoulder? You may question any of them. Is the ball coming at him too quickly? That’s what they believed was too near, and that’s what they decided.”


Ten Hag, who lashed out against VAR following his team’s defeat, will take Gallagher’s words personally. “We deserved a penalty,” he said, according to Sky Sports. “I’m not sure why (it wasn’t stated).” It’s a punishment.


“There is definitely a penalty.” The ball changes direction, and he’s blocking; the hand is directly above (him).”


Bruno Fernandes was also perplexed by the decision, and he demanded an apology from referee chief Jon Moss. When asked why he thought Oliver didn’t give a penalty, Fernandes stated, “You have to ask him.” They must begin conducting interviews following the games in order to explain themselves. There were no reasons for not seeing it, and no justifications for the VAR not seeing it.


“They made a big deal last week about United not having a penalty against [them].” I’m curious to see what happens this week, and if it will be the same program as last week. I’m curious to see whether Jon Moss comes to apologize to our locker room, like they did to Wolves’ management. I’m hoping he can make it.”
