Leicester City Fans Blast  VAR As Ederson Escapes Red Card For Iheanacho Challenge

Leicester City fans have blasted the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) and Paul Tierney for not sending off Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson for his foul on Kelechi Iheanacho in Manchester City’s 1-0 win at King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

Iheanacho was punched by Ederson in his attempt to head home Maddison’s pass in the first half.

The Nigerian forward needed quick medical attention before leaving the pitch.

He however did not return to the pitch for the second half as he was replaced by Harvey Barnes.

Incensed by referee Tierney and VAR’s decision not to issue a red card, a decision that could have seen a different result, they took to social media to express their anger.

    How a penalty was not given for that late punch on Kelechi was still a mystery. VAR is not wrong only the VAR referees are making wrong interpretation of the video replays.
