Twitter slams VAR after Manchester City’s controversial exit from the Champions League against Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester City found themselves hard done not once but twice by VAR decisions as they were defeated by Tottenham on away goals and bowed out of the Champions League.

The English Champions’ hunt for a historic quadruple was handed a brutal gutcheck when two controversial VAR decisions – one to allow a Tottehman goal and one to disallow a Manchester City one – saw them crash out of the Champions League.

After a rollicking start to the game, that saw 4 goals fly in in the first 10 or so minutes, Manchester City imposed themselves on the game, establishing a 2 goal lead that would have seen them through to the semifinals.

However a dubious Fernando Llorente goal from a corner in the 73rd minute, that saw the ball brush off his arm before creeping into the net, gave Spurs the edge on away goals.

And that was how it ended after Raheem Sterling’s goal in injury time was ruled out for a marginal offside call in the build up.

Understandably, the fans were not happy at how big a say VAR had had on the final result of the match and much less so that neither call was a cut and dry one.
