Erik ten Hag Unhappy with VAR Offside Decision

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was left unhappy with a VAR decision that ruled out a goal for Alejandro Garnacho in the team's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

The young Argentine forward appeared to be in an onside position when he received the ball and scored, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review.

Ten Hag was critical of the decision in his post-match interview, saying: "It's not offside! It's so clear and obvious!"

The Dutchman is not the first manager to be critical of VAR this season. There have been a number of controversial decisions in recent weeks, and it is clear that the technology is still not perfect.

VAR is designed to help referees make the correct decisions, but it is clear that it is not always infallible. There is still a need for human judgment in football, and VAR should not be used to overturn decisions that are clearly correct.

In the case of Garnacho's goal, it is difficult to see how he could have been offside. He was in an onside position when he received the ball, and he did not make any deliberate move to play the ball.

The VAR decision was clearly wrong, and it is understandable why Ten Hag was unhappy with it. It is a reminder that VAR is still a work in progress, and that there is still room for improvement.

It is also a reminder that referees should not be afraid to make decisions, even if they are difficult. VAR is there to help them, but it should not be used to second-guess their decisions.
