VAR Officials Caught Debating Penalty Decision During Leicester City Vs Wolves

VAR Officials Caught Debating Penalty Decision During Leicester City Vs Wolves

VAR officials working on Leicester City vs Wolves look to have been discussing the controversial penalty given against the away side at half-time.

Leicester took a 1-0 lead through Jamie Vardy after Wolves defender Max Kilman was judged to have handled the ball while running.

Many think the penalty was harsh given Kilman's running motion and a peek inside the VAR control room showed officials were debating the call.

Sky Sports presenter Dave Jones told Jamie Carragher: "This is Neil Swarbrick in the white t-shirt, who's in charge of the VAR department, maybe having that conversation with Stuart Attwell. What do you make of that?"

Carragher then replied: "They must be having the debate we're having in terms of a running action.

"I think he might be telling him he's made a mistake. I mean, why would you go in and explain using that running action if you think they've got it right?"

Fans have reacted to the footage and they can't understand how an error can be 'clear and obvious' if debate rages on half an hour later.
