VAR vote: Wayne Rooney says VAR has taken enjoyment out of the game

VAR vote: Wayne Rooney says VAR has taken enjoyment out of the game

The call which was the straw which ultimately broke the camel’s back for Wolves was the decision to rule out Max Kilman’s injury-time leveller against West Ham last month.

Wolves lost 2-1 at home, harming their European hopes at the time, after Tawanda Chirewa was adjudged to be offside and blocking Lukasz Fabianski, therefore interfering with play.

O’Neil called it one of the worst decisions he had ever seen and his reaction to referee Tony Harrington led to a £8,000 fine and a one-game touchline ban.

The KMI panel unanimously agreed with the officials’ decisions.

Wolves are likely to find support from other clubs.

Nottingham Forest’s controversial social media post about VAR Stuart Attwell following the defeat at Everton in April went viral.

Claims for penalties after Ashley Young’s challenge on Gio Reyna, his handball and then an attempted tackle on Callum Hudson-Odoi were all turned down by Anthony Taylor on the pitch, with video assistant referee Attwell not intervening.

Forest lost the Premier League game 2-0 at Goodison Park.
