English Referees Are Not Able To Use VAR

Maurizio Sarri was able to re-watch the play after the match - even bringing the club analyst's laptop into his post-match interviews - and, in his eyes, the officials were off the mark.


"A few minutes ago I watched the video from our camera. It was offside. Our camera was in line with Harry Kane," Sarri said.

"Offside with the head, the knee. Offside. It was really important the linesman carried on running, he had a big impact on our defenders.

"I don't think English referees are able to use the system."

In the consequence of the above, Chelsea boss slammed the use of the Video Assistant Referee [ VAR ] on Tuesday, adding that he doesn't think English referees are able to properly use the system.

Harry Kane was awarded a penalty kick in Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, which ended up as a 1-0 victory for Tottenham thanks to the forward's match-winning finish.

Kane was tripped up by Kepa Arrizabalaga in the first half of the clash at Wembley Stadium, prompting referees to review the sequence.
