Chris Wilder Gives Passionate Opinion On VAR And Many Fans Agree

Chris Wilder Gives Passionate Opinion On VAR And Many Fans Agree

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has said football is 'sucking the life out of him' after VAR's involvement against Newcastle United last night.

Jonjo Shelvey ran through and scored a decisive second in Newcastle's 2-0 victory, despite Andy Carroll being ruled offside in the build up.

Following the game, Wilder said per Independent:

"It sucked the life out of my players, but more importantly it sucked the life out of 30,000 Sheffield United fans.

"It (VAR) is becoming too difficult for everyone. I don't think anyone knows where they are with it. The game has changed, it's a new game. What we are having to deal with, we're having to learn on the job.

"Every interview that I do post-game is VAR-based, the majority of the time it is. I'm drained with it, if I'm honest. We are learning a different game and I am a bit saddened by it.

"It's every week and I don't think anyone knows where we are with it with any decision. One week one is given then the next the same thing isn't given.

"The game has changed in a heartbeat and it is a difficult one to learn, nobody knows what to do. I'm all over the place with it."

Wilder also said he's 'not enjoying adapting' to the technology.

The result ended the Blades' seven match unbeaten run and was their first loss since September.
