Pundit can't believe latest Leeds United controversy as 'seven different angles' analysed

Alan Hutton has claimed VAR decisions are no longer clear and obvious after a lengthy VAR check on Ivan Toney’s penalty against Leeds United on Saturday (3 September).

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender said the technology is helping the game but it needs to “quicken up”.

Brentford were awarded a penalty in the game against Leeds on Saturday (3 September) for a foul by Louis Sinisterra on Ivan Toney.

Referee Robert Jones was sent to the monitor to have another look at the incident and after a lengthy check awarded the penalty.

Toney fired home from the spot in the 5-2 win over the Yorkshire club.

Hutton said that errors are no longer clear and obvious when referees take so long to check the incident.

That’s the thing, some of these decisions are taking so long so it can’t be clear and obvious,” he told Football Insider.

That’s what it was brought in for. If somebody made a mistake that was obvious, they go and look at the monitor and see that it’s a mistake. If the referee is going over and taking three or four minutes, seven different angles and still unsure, I mean come on.

It goes back to consistency, that’s all people are wanting. It was meant to be brought in to help the game, I think it does but they just have to quicken it up I think.
