Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman could not contain his frustration at VAR after seeing his team beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in La Liga on Saturday at the Camp Nou.
Real Madrid’s second goal came from the penalty spot and put the visitors 2-1 up in the game. Defender Clement Lenglet was penalized for a shirt tug on Sergio Ramos who went to ground theatrically inside the penalty area.
The spot-kick was given after a VAR check and Ramos duly converted to put Real Madrid ahead just after the hour mark. Luka Modric went on to score their third in stoppage time.
Koeman was asked about the decision after the match and went on to explain in detail why he was not happy with the award of the penalty, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.
For me, it is not a penalty. I have told the referee that I hope they can explain the issue of VAR to me here in Spain. In five days, the VAR only goes against Barça. He did not enter the penalty from Sevilla to Messi, in the two reds in Getafe, there are several examples. Why is there only VAR against us? I have asked the referee.
