The Professional Game Match Officials Limited, PGMOL, has explained why Bruno Fernandes’ goal against Manchester City on Saturday was allowed to stand.
Fernandes made it 1-1 with a controversial goal after substitute Jack Grealish had opened the scoring in the second half.
Marcus Rashford grabbed the winner moments later as United saw City off at Old Trafford.
PGMOL is responsible for referees in the English professional game.
And according to NBC, “PGMOL have gotten back to us and have said no touch on the ball, no impact on the defender, and therefore they [VAR] could find no reason for a clear and obvious error.
“According to the PGMOL, they say [Rashford] did not impact the defender and he did not touch the ball and therefore Rashford was OK to do what he did and allow Fernandes to come onto the ball and score.”
