Mauricio Pochettino expressed his dissatisfaction with VAR after they confiscated Axel Disasi’s goal in injury time, causing Chelsea to miss out on a painful victory.

“The Blues” were beaten by Aston. Villa led 2-0 at half time but they fought back with two goals in the second half from Noni Madueke and Conor Gallagher. The

London visitors came hard and were close to adding another goal. Especially Cole Palmer, whose shot was narrowly saved by Robin Olsen.

Then, when playing a corner kick, Chelsea sent the ball into the winning goal when Benoit Badiashil scooped the ball up for Disasi to dive and head in the six-yard box through Olsen’s hands and into the net, but it was reclaimed by VAR. Because it was considered that Badiachil had committed a foul first.

However, after the game Pochettino was clearly annoyed with the decision. Gave an interview that “For me, VAR has ruined English football. Completely destroys the image of football.”

“That moment was definitely a goal. It’s unbelievable and crazy. Two weeks ago meeting Manchester City, it should have been a handball and not a penalty.”

In addition, Pochettino spoke about the team’s performance that “We conceded an early goal which was difficult to manage. We were greatly affected by สมัคร ufabet the defeat to Manchester City in the semi-finals. And we struggled to recover ′

′ But today the team showed great character and performance. We are a better team. We deserve to win But I’m glad we performed this well against a team that is in a very good position. and showing that they can compete in this way.”
