Liverpool fans brand Ange Postecoglou "shameless" after previous comments about VAR

Liverpool fans brand Ange Postecoglou "shameless" after previous comments about VAR

Reds fans have dug up the Spurs boss' previous comments.

Liverpool fans have branded Ange Postecoglou a 'hypocrite' for his comments regarding VAR.

The Premier League's video assistant referee technology took centre stage once more during Tottenham's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

Reds supporters were left furious after the PGMOL confirmed that Liverpool had a goal incorrectly ruled out for offside due to a 'human error'.

A visibly frustrated Jurgen Klopp was lost for words at full-time, labelling some of the decisions "crazy" and "unfair".

However, Spurs boss Postecoglou was typically far more forgiving of VAR, claiming that errors are simply "part of the game".

"No form of the technology is going to make the game errorless," the Australian said in his post-match press conference.

"We used to understand that errors were a part of the game, including officiating errors, that was part of the game.

"When you put something such a high bar on something, invariably it's going to fail. So if people are thinking that VAR is going to be something at some point which is perfect, that's never going to happen."

However, Liverpool fans have been quick to dig out Postecoglou's previous comments about VAR and the lack of clarity around the handball rule.

Speaking after Tottenham's 2-2 draw with Arsenal last weekend, when Cristian Romero gave away a penalty for a handball, the 58-year-old told reporters: “I’ve got no idea what the handball rule is anymore. I’ve no idea, mate.”

"I’ve seen all sorts of them given and not given and they look identical.”

Liverpool fans have branded Postecoglou a hypocrite for his difference in attitudes, with one fan tweeting: "Always works this way, complain when it’s against, complicit when it’s for them."

"Shameless embarrassing comments. Get out," another added.

"Hypocrite," a third chimed in, while a fourth wrote: "People will finally wake up to this manager and his ways.

"Plenty back in Australia got fed up with his rhetoric, wait till the results don't go his way. It's coming."
