‘It is clear and obvious’ Pundit slams the decision not to award Arsenal a penalty

Rio Ferdinand has slammed VAR after it failed to award Arsenal a penalty in their match against Manchester City.

The game ended 2-1 after City turned the game on its head with a very late winner.

The Sky Blues should have conceded a penalty in the first half when Ederson tripped Martin Odegaard while going for the ball.

VAR didn’t intervene to give Arsenal a spot-kick. However, when Granit Xhaka tripped Bernardo Silva in the second half, it did and awarded City a penalty.

It was yet another day when VAR was as inconsistent as ever.

Former Manchester United defender, Ferdinand is convinced Arsenal should have had a penalty for the Ederson challenge.

He said via The Daily Mail: ‘I do not understand with VAR how it was not given.

‘It is clear and obvious, it gets on my nerves, it clouds everything.’
