Angry Barcelona Signing Blasts Unfair VAR After Real Madrid Win.

Post a Comment
Prompting you the best..... 

Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who will be joining Barcelona at the end of the season, believes Video Assisted Referee (VAR) decisions can “easily fall in favour of the big club”, as his current side found out in Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Barca’s arch-rival, Real Madrid. The home side saw a first-half goal disallowed for offside in a controversial moment, though, the Barca-bound midfielder insists they are still in the tie.

Having wasted a number of chances in the first half of the first leg round of 16 Champions League clash, Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico appeared to give the Dutch side the lead when he headed past Thibaut Courtois towards the end of the first half. However, the home side’s celebrations were cut short when referee Damir Skomina stopped to review the footage and ruled that Dusan Tadic had interfered with play from an offside position as he jumped towards the Madrid goalkeeper.

Afterwards, Karim Benzema fired in the game’s real opening goal on the hour mark after being teed up by Vinicius Junior. The Amsterdam side pulled level 15 minutes later through Hakim Ziyech, only for Marco Asensio to ensure Santiago Solari’s men take the advantage into the second leg in Madrid. That left De Jong believing Ajax showed enough to suggest they can find a way back into the game when they visit the Santiago Bernabeu, but it was a “pity” to see the goal taken away. Real Madrid, who are three-time defending champions of the competition, will host Ajax for the return leg of the second round tie on March 5.

“In Spain, we must play just as we did here at home. With daring and conviction. Nothing has been decided yet. Real will also feel more pressure in front of its own audience. As a team we did well. It’s a shame that our goal was disallowed. Maybe something like that falls easily in favour of the big club, we’ve also had that. But we continued well and also had our chances afterwards. Pity that it didn’t yield a better result”, he told NOS.

Do you agree with De Jong that VAR favours the big teams or is the young midfielder only making the claim because he will soon become a Barcelona player who will be facing Real Madrid in future El Clasico matches?
