The 26-year-old asks, "Who is it offside, is it [Diogo] Jota from the corner?"
When asked about the goal being disallowed Dean can be seen saying: "I don't know, I was told in my earpiece to disallow the goal due to VAR," while gesturing to his ear piece.
Coady then responds with 'You're refereeing the game and you don't f**king know' before shrugging his shoulders an storming down the tunnel.
The goal being disallowed lead to many on social media once again questioning the involvement of VAR this season.
'You're refereeing the game and you don't know whose offside when you've disallowed the goal'

Trying to officiate a law that was brought in to simply stop goal-hanging by measuring it down to mm. the law was never designed to be officiated in this way

That was a joke. No advantage what so ever to cause infringement on the goal.

Get rid of it ASAP, meant to be clear and obvious error

VAR is a bloody disgrace to football

Offside or not isn't the problem.. it's ruining football

The game ended 0-0 and 'The Foxes' finished with 10 men following Hamza Choudury's red card.
Victory for Wolves this evening would have seen Nuno Espirito Santo's side move within three points of fourth place Chelsea.
What do you think of Coady's rant and do you think the goal should have been disallowed?
