Watch: More angles show Man Utd benefitted as VAR got handball call against Kessie wrong

By Oliver Fisher -

More angles have emerged showing that the decision by VAR to disallow Franck Kessie’s stunning goal against Manchester United was wrong.

Milan had the ball in the net in the 11th minute as Kessie took a touch from a throw-in and thumped the ball into the far corner as it sat up for him nicely just inside the box. However, VAR decided to intervene for handball, though the replay made it look like a questionable call.

As the replays below show, it looked a very debatable decision indeed…

  1. Jacqui Smith says:

    Nothing conclusive here, except that if it did touch his arm, the ball was hardly deflected off its original course.

    1. bb says:

      I agree. These kind of VAR decicions are ruining the game.

    2. victor says:

      Very conclusive, in the sense that it was a legitimate goal. The VAR has annulled many legitimate goals. If there are stupid rules, then change the rules. VAR has also given penalties that should never have been given.

  2. Aaditya Verma says:

    fun fact: out of all the MANU players near kessie no one appealed for a handball, ref gave the desicion quite quickly too.

    1. Rosso says:

      “Quite quickly” – that’s what I thought too. And probably using only one angle. Other angles would be clear that it’s not a handball.

      1. rivera says:

        I agree the ball came up very quick, but in saying that how the VAR came up with the conclusion to disallow the goal and call it as a hand ball is totally unexplainable

        Two goals away could have spelt the end of Man utd maybe?

  3. Men3m Loz says:

    This is a scandal 100 % ligitimate goal without a shadow of doubt. Var referees should be punished for this.

  4. SamsonNite says:

    If it touched his hand Matic would have been the first to reacted to it. VAR should not interfering a game if no one protest. No one saw the handball only one guy with VAR and he got it wrong.

  5. Dimitri says:

    This has NOTHING TO DO with VAR! It’s that KRAUT should NEVER EVER AGAIN ref a match!
