Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag says VAR showed ‘wrong angle’ for Alejandro Garnacho’s disallowed goal which ‘was in play’


Erik ten Hag believes Alejandro Garnacho’s offside goal in the 3-1 loss to Arsenal should have stood.

The Argentina international’s 88th-minute goal was ruled offside after video review, but Ten Hag said it was viewed from “the wrong angle”.

Replays showed Garnacho just ahead of Gabriel Magalhaes after being played on goal, and clarity was given when footage from the VAR room showed lines drawn to prove it.

However, Ten Hag insisted Garnacho “was onside”, but Sky presenter Dave Jones responded by saying “offside is offside”.

Ten Hag replied that “we have to accept it” and came on strongly defensively of his team, believing that Rasmus Hojlund should also have had a penalty.

“You saw the match, but there is no offside. Bad angle,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.

“The penalty on Hojlund. And then we concede a goal which is a foul on Jonny Evans, it’s so clear and obvious.”

With VAR intervention making it 1-1, Arsenal instead took the lead in stoppage time through Declan Rice, before Gabriel Jesus finished the game with a 3-1 goal.
