EPL: What De Bruyne said after VAR denied Man City victory over Tottenham

Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne, has admitted he is struggling to understand the rule change on handball.

De Bruyne was speaking after Gabriel Jesus’ dramatic stoppage-time effort, was disallowed by Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for handball against Aymeric Laporte.

The Belgian is surprised that it would not have been a penalty to City, had a Tottenham player accidentally handled the ball as Laporte did.

According to Law 12, VAR ruled out Jesus’ effort because Laporte’s handball directly led to a goal, even though it was unintentional.

“I’m old fashioned and I’m not the biggest pro-VAR.

“I was told after the game that if it had hit a Tottenham arm, it wouldn’t have been a penalty, so I don’t understand it. I don’t understand it at all. It should be debated.

“We knew it was being reviewed. Every goal is reviewed. When the referee did the disallowed goal sign, I didn’t know why, Tottenham didn’t know why,” De Bruyne said.
