Premier League Espirito Fumes After Another Calamitous VAR Decision

Nuno Espirito Santo, the manager of Nottingham Forest, vented his annoyance at the Video Assistant Referee after Brighton & Hove Albion’s Jakub Moder avoided a red card for a shoddy tackle on Neco Williams during their 1-0 Premier League loss on Sunday.

In the 67th minute, midfielder Moder—who was subsequently replaced—lunged in and caught Williams on the ankle, earning him a yellow card. VAR reviewed the event, but Moder did not receive a warning.

With ten games remaining and a loss, Forest is now in 17th place, three points above the relegation zone.

The decision made by match referee Paul Tierney to not give the ball back to Forest for a restart just before Liverpool’s winning goal in the 99th minute, according to Forest’s referee analyst last weekend, was incorrect.

Again we are going to send a letter to them and they apologise,” Nuno told Sky Sports.

“Someone tell me what is happening. It is week after week.

Last week it cost us a point at Newcastle. All these situations. It is enough.

“We will keep on fighting. We will regroup.

“We will analyse the game and prepare for the Luton game.

“It will be tough but we will be ready.
“I am just asking in a very honest way, tell me why. Why always us?”
