Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has given his opinion on Saturday’s VAR decision involving Tottenham Hotspur.

Serge Aurier had thought he had put Tottenham 2-0 ahead against Leicester City during the second half of the match at the King Power Stadium, only for the goal to be chalked off after they decided that Heung-min Son was marginally offside during the lead up to the goal.

The decision has certainly caused plenty of debate with Jordan’s co-host on talkSPORT, Danny Kelly firmly believing that the decision was incorrect.

Jordan has called the patience with the new techology and whilst admitting that he is an advocate, believes that there needs to be a sensible level of pressure for it to evolve and improve.


Many Spurs fans still feel aggrieved at the decision when there should be an advantage given to the attacker, it certainly proved to be costly with Tottenham’s poor away form continuing for yet another week.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. VAR officials got Son offside all wrong.
    Why? One’s feet should adjudicate offside or not. Leicester defender’s foot was closer to the line than Son. Take another look to be absolutely sure, rather than making a rash hasty decision like was made on Saturday.
    Incorrect options for offside such as elbow/arm, haircut, i.e. (all hair cuts should be the same), Laughable isn’t it? shirt blowing in the wind. All these options are not off sides and should not be part of a VAR decision.. What controls your body movement other than your mind is your feet if you make a step?! A goal keeper can be in the penalty area but can still catch the ball out side of the area. Does that say he has infringed the line of play? Starting to make sense now of what I am saying, Ya?!
    After that incorrect VAR call, reflects just another uncertainty for Spurs to take into their next game. Some where along the way officials, some one has to get this correct. How many times are these rulings going to continue to discourage, it seems right now, only Spurs?! GOOD BYE!
