WATCH | VAR’s derby disaster causes more headaches for A-League

Another controversial VAR decision has sparked outrage in the Sydney Derby.

Sydney FC claimed a 2-0 victory, after a 59th minute goal to the Wanderers was overturned by the video assistant referee.

Bonevacia put the ball into the net, only for his goal to be disallowed after the VAR deemed Sydney winger Michael Zullo had been fouled by an offside player during the build-up.

This sent fans into a frenzy, including Wanderers coach Markus Babbel, who was sent off for remonstrating with the officials.

Head of the A-League Greg O’Rourke is currently lobbying FIFA to allow the VAR’s decision making process to be broadcast in full on television and in the ground.

Should the A-League reduce the VAR’s authority?

Mark Levy and Mark Riddell had a bit to say about it this morning..
