Manchester City: Fans fume over VAR failure to spot elbow on Rodri

Manchester City: Fans fume over VAR failure to spot elbow on Rodri

After a brilliant Champions League night away to Dinamo Zagreb, executing a 4-1 demolition job, somewhat easing the pain of last weekend’s derby defeat, this questionable VAR verdict during the encounter has Manchester City fans raging – and it’s hard not to see why.

At 1-1 heading into half-time, a Dinamo counter-attack resulted in defensive midfielder Rodri being struck with a swinging elbow – but VAR wasn’t implemented to perhaps punish the offender for misconduct.

Upon slow-motion replay, it’s clear to see why a lot of City supporters feel justice wasn’t served on behalf of their team – with the Spaniard taking a sharp elbow to the face when trying to stifle a rare Dinamo break forward.

As a result, taking into account previous deliberations with VAR over the course of this season, Sky Blues fans want answers as to why this action wasn’t punished.
