EPL: Guardiola slams VAR and the referee over Haaland's disallowed goal.

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has slammed the match officials for their game against Brighton on Wednesday night.

After Erling Haaland's potential late winner was ruled out during the game, the Spaniard was furious.

Manchester City drew 1-1 at the Amex on Wednesday night, ensuring the home side's qualification for the Europa League next season.

Phil Foden opened the scoring for the Citizens before Julio Enciso levelled for Roberto de Zerbi’s side.

However, the Premier League champions scored what many thought would have been the winning goal by Haaland with just over 10 minutes remaining.

However, VAR advised referee Simon Hooper to review the goal on the pitch-side and Haaland was adjudged to have pulled the shirt of defender Levi Colwill.

“If it is a fault, there are 25 faults to every defender when they make a long ball. If it is a fault, every time it is a fault.

“Come on. It is ridiculous. The goal disallowed is ridiculous but it doesn’t matter,” he said.
