Ian Wright took to TikTok to post a furious tirade about VAR following the controversial Arsenal vs Chelsea incident on Saturday.
The Gunners drew 1-1 at home to Brentford while the Blues also drew 1-1 to West Ham in a game filled with controversy.
Brentford’s equalizer at the Emirates was only cleared after it was revealed that VAR official Lee Mason forgot to draw lines that would have shown Christian Norgaard offside ahead of Ivan Toni’s goal.
While in the London stadium, Chelsea were denied a clear penalty as a close-kick from Conor Gallagher hit Thomas Soucek in the arm, only to have their appeals dismissed by referee Craig Pawson and the VAR system not intervening.
These were not the only controversies over the weekend as PGMOL were forced to apologize to Brighton after admitting that VAR had made a mistake by canceling a first-half offside goal from Purvis Estupinan and the lines were again drawn incorrectly.
Wright was furious at the three incidents as he said in a TikTok video on Sunday, “Brother… I’m just sitting here completely confused… confused by what I saw from the VAR referee yesterday.
‘I can not believe this. I can’t believe what I saw. What are the implications for Brighton of trying to get into Europe?
“What are the implications for Graham Potter? We finally saw the Chelsea team doing something in the first half hour and I thought, ‘Yes! Graham Potter, you’re starting to understand, you know…
“What are the implications for Arsenal, man? Trying to put together a title run, man… what are the consequences… they say the best league in the world.
“That’s what we say, ‘Oh, the best league in the world’…
“These mistakes… what happens next? What will happen to the referee or PGMOL? Are we going to get an apology?
“Someone is going to be removed? A break disguised as a disqualification…
“You can’t even blame technology, man. On two occasions… they drew lines in the wrong place, dude! Wrong place… God… I don’t know, man, I don’t know.
Shortly after Wright’s video, PGMOL released a statement saying: “PGMOL can confirm that its Chief Referee Howard Webb has contacted Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion to acknowledge and explain serious errors in the VAR process in their respective Premier matches.” leagues on Saturday. .
“Both human-caused incidents related to offside analysis are being scrutinized by PGMOL.”
