Clinton Morrison on the VAR decision

Speaking to the BBC: “It just frustrates me. At the end of the game, I want to talk about football.

“Instead, we are talking about VAR and the handball rule. I would take the handball rule away from the VAR officials. I like it that the referee goes to the monitor because the players will respect it more. I don’t blame the referee, I blame VAR. That is the problem.”
