Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has taken to Twitter to call for changes to be made to the current VAR rules.
The introduction of VAR to the Premier League this season has seen its fair share of controversy, particularly regarding marginal offside decisions, with five goals in the top flight disallowed after reviews last weekend.
Tottenham were the beneficiaries when Norwich City had a second goal chalked off whilst they were 1-0 up at Carrow Road for a narrow decision.
In total Spurs have benefitted from five VAR decisions and had four ruled against them (BBC).
Jose Mourinho’s side have also been on the receiving end as recently as Boxing Day when Harry Kane’s armpit was ruled to be offside after he thought he had scored an opening goal against Brighton.
Sugar sees the benefit in VAR being introduced to the top flight but wants to see the rule changed for such marginal decisions.
VAR is good for the game but this rule needs to be changed and the rule should be the attackers boot should be OVER the line not his hands arms and shoulders https://t.co/Eu9fl1s7Rw
