Pep On VAR After Man City's Big Win

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola shared his thoughts on VAR, which played a role in the Premier League dhampions' 5-0 thumping of West Ham United.

Read: Sterling Hat-Trick Leads Man City To Five-Star Win

The Citizens got the defence of their title off to a great start at the London Stadium on Saturday evening, with Raheem Sterling netting a hat-trick on the night.

VAR is now being used in the Premier League as City had a goal ruled out for a marginal offside while Sergio Aguero had to re-take a penalty after Declan Rice had encroached.

However, Guardiola feels the passion in football could take a knock due to the new technology.

“We lost a little bit, the instant?” said Guardiola, according to the Mirror.
 
“You have to celebrate it when it’s so clear, when there’s doubts, celebrate it but always be focused because maybe it’s not regular and you have to continue your concentration to not lose our momentum.
 
“After what happened against Tottenham in the quarter finals, where we have scored in the 95th minute and we were there.
 
"All the 60,000 in joy, dancing, jumping and one second later, we lost because it was offside – now I’m used to live these situations.
 
"The passion, now we can control that emotion. You have to be mentally strong when VAR is not on our side. It will be a good lesson for our future.
 
“The only thing I wish is that VAR doesn’t make mistakes.
 
"My only concern is when VAR makes a mistake and after that happens quite often, it’s better that referees make the decisions and always we live with them.”
