He claimed the shirt pull was one that regularly occurs in a match. Ronald Koeman hit out at the technology’s lack of consistency in VAR’s application. Koeman also said: “I would like someone to explain to me how VAR works in Spain.” “So far this season it has only intervened against Barcelona, never in our favour.”

“It did the same against Getafe and Sevilla, for plays against us.” But his comments could see him banned for four games.
