Pep Guardiola had criticised the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for not giving Manchester City a penalty when Phil Foden looked to have been clearly fouled in the win over Southampton. Reacting to the decision, Guardiola described the VAR decision as ‘incredible’, saying it was important as the game was level at the time.
Pep Guardiola said: “I don’t understand why Fulham is allowed a goal vs Tottenham. I don’t understand the hands Arsenal vs Burnley. Another example is the penalty today. We won, we are happy. Jon cannot see but the VAR is there. For a long time, I never complain about the referees but this is action is in-cred-i-ble. In-cred-i-ble. The VAR exists for the referees who don’t see the action to review. I don’t understand. Fulham, Arsenal, the hands. Maybe one day they will explain the rules. Okay we won 5-2 but it was 1-1 and if we weren’t able to win and we are only 8 points clear. I am proud because what we have done this club we have won it for ourselves.”
