Leeds United victims of injustice as Crysencio Summerville controversy analysed - pundit

Alan Hutton has slammed the lack of consistency in VAR after Leeds United were denied a penalty in their defeat to Brentford on Saturday (3 September).

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa right-back said Jesse Marsch’s sending off for his reaction was inevitable.

The Whites were denied a penalty in the second half of their 5-2 defeat to Brentford when Aaron Hickey pulled down Crysencio Summerville on the edge of the penalty area.

Referee Robert Jones was not told to have another look at the incident by VAR official David Coote.

Marsch made his anger known to the referee and was shown a red card for his protests.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game (3 September), the Leeds boss said the officials lacked “respect” for his side by not checking the incident.

Hutton said Marsch’s reaction to the incident was understandable.

It’s just subjective, it just depends who’s looking at it at the time,” he told Football Insider.

I understand him getting upset because one week it might have been checked, the next week it doesn’t. So you’re looking at the consistency, that’s what he’s obviously annoyed and frustrated at.

You could tell at the time how emotional he was, you could work out exactly what he was saying so he was always going to get sent off for his reaction but you understand why.

You just want consistency. It seems very difficult at this moment in time to have that.
