Manchester City were denied an injury time winning goal against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening.
City were celebrating after Gabriel Jesus appeared to have scored in the 91st minute of the encounter at the Etihad Stadium, only for the goal to be chalked off because the ball had made contact Aymeric Laporte’s arm in the build-up to it reaching the Brazilian.
Shamed former editor of The Mirror, Piers Morgan who is known for his love of Arsenal and outspoken dislike of North London rivals Spurs, took to Twitter following the 2-2 draw to share his view.
Morgan claimed that VAR should be abolished by the footballing authorities as he believes that it could risk ruining the beautiful game.
New handball rules introduced this season state that any goal resulting from handball, accidental or otherwise, must be ruled out (BBC).
VAR sucks. Let’s get rid of it before it ruins football.

Morgan’s view of VAR will no undoubtedly be different if a decision goes in favour of Arsenal during the upcoming North London derby.
It is enjoyable to see that Spurs continue to live rent-free in his head.
