Mauricio Pochettino was critical of the VAR technology used in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea.
Michael Oliver checked with the VAR before giving the penalty that Kane converted. However, there was controversy regarding the offside call leading to the penalty.
Chelsea shared an image of their camera claiming Kane was offside (h/t BBC) and Pochettino believes there is a lot of work to be done to make the system perfect.
Speaking after the game, the Argentine claimed he was not a fan of VAR (h/t BBC):
“I don’t like the VAR.”
The manager added that he has been tracking VAR from the World Cup and La Liga, and claimed no one is happy with the technology.
Pochettino claimed it was nice to get the benefit of the call this time, but wasn’t happy at winning the tie in this fashion.
The Argentine claimed there is a lot of work to do regarding the system as the Premier League will introduce VAR next season.
“That is a good example for us. We have six months to improve the system and there is a lot of work to do.”
Pochettino is right in claiming the entire system has to be made better. There were many Chelsea players distracted by the assistant referee, and if we had been on the opposite end of the call, it would have seemed harsh.
Tottenham weren’t at their best in the 1-0 win over the Blues, but every winning team needs a bit of luck, and fortune favoured us on Tuesday.
