  • And now a furious Brady believes that the technology should be shown ‘the red card’

West Ham chief Karren Brady erupted in a scathing assessment of VAR, calling for the controversial technology to be circumvented.

Brady and her club remained particularly tight against Chelsea on Wednesday, as the East London outfit stared firmly into the ranks of relegation – and their woes seemed to have worsened after a goal was ruled out.

Tomas Soucek’s finish a short distance from a scramble in the penalty area was scratched after a VAR referral, and Brady now believes it is time for the system to see ‘the red card’.

Brady says his comments reflected the overall feeling at London Stadium.

“Mikhail Antonio summed up – much more politely than most – how everyone at West Ham feels about VAR after our win over Chelsea,” she added.

VAR has often been criticized this season after its controversial Premier League introduction.

The politician and TV personality have supported the dissenting voices by insisting that ‘in these strangest football seasons it is clear that VAR has not corrected officials’ mistakes.
