Former Premier League referee,Mark Halsey reviewing the decision of the ref after VAR checks on Fernando Llorente’s goal,said the VAR was wrong to have awarded Spurs a goal when it was actually a hand ball.
Etihad Stadium was host to absolutely chaotic scenes on Wednesday night, as City and Spurs treated us to surely one of the most exhilarating ties in European football history.
City fans were dumb-founded while Spurs support jubilated for progressing to the last four of the European Cup for the first time since 1962.
Halsey says Pep Guardiola’s side were hard dealt with;

”I’ve seen an angle where, had the referee seen that angle, I’m almost certain he would have disallowed that goal last night.
”If we’ve got VAR, we’ve got to give them all the afforded angles to look at that decision.
”It’s such a massive call, but the consequence of what happened next – the ball ending up in the net – it had to be disallowed, Mark Halsey told Brazil Sports Breakfast..
