'Clear & obvious we need VAR discussion!' - Milner 'falling out of love' with football due to technology


James Milner Liverpool 2020-21

James Milner has called for a "serious discussion" about the use of VAR in the Premier Leagueafter the technology played a major role inBrighton's equaliser on Saturday.

Andy Robertson appeared to catch Brighton forward Danny Welbeck inside the box when he attempted a clearance and the referee checked the footage and subsequently awarded a spot kick. Pascal Gross then converted to ensure the sides shared the points in a 1-1 draw.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said after the game that "the decisions were right", but midfielder Jordan Henderson voiced his anger and said even Welbeck admitted that the referee made the wrong call.

Milner, meanwhile, took to social media to express his anger about VAR, revealing that the constant controversy surrounding it is causing him to fall "out of love" with the sport.

"It’s 'clear and obvious'we need a serious discussion about VAR," he wrote on Twitter. "I'msure I’m not alone in feeling like they are falling out of love with the game in its current state."

Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson also voiced his complaints on Twitter. The 26-year-old believes it is time the players were given a say in how VAR is used.

"Wonder when the people playing the game will have a say!" the Scotland international tweeted. "Very frustrating day but credit to Brighton, really tough opponent!"

Saturday's result saw Liverpool return to the top of the table, putting them a point ahead of Tottenham and three ahead of Chelsea and Leicester.
