Everton: Fans slam Mike Riley as club expresses concerns over VAR

Everton: Fans slam Mike Riley as club expresses concerns over VAR - Everton

Everton fans have slammed the head of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) Mike Riley after VAR has come under intense scrutiny during its first full season in the Premier League.

The newly-introduced technology has become a controversial aspect of the game in England and the Toffees have found themselves on the wrong end of multiple decisions, particularly against Brighton and Tottenham.

Aston Villa, Manchester City and Brighton are also among a host of clubs that have directly written to the Premier League ahead of a meeting with all 20 clubs this week.

This comes after the Premier League recently admitted that they made a mistake in awarding a penalty to Brighton, which Neal Maupay converted before Everton eventually lost 3-2 down on the south coast.

Supporters were vastly unhappy with Riley and the referees collectively and made their feelings clear on social media after the revelation of an official complaint.

Here you will find some of the many disgruntled responses from Everton fans:

Is Marco Silva the right man for Everton?

Yes

Yes

No
