Furious Liverpool Fan Refuses To Watch Reds Play Again Until 'VAR Is Gone' After Merseyside Drama
A Liverpool fan has blasted VAR and insisted that they won't watch football again unless the controversial technology is removed from the sport.
The Reds walked away with a point over rivals Everton on Saturday after a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.
However, the Merseyside derby was marred in controversy as Virgil van Dijk suffered an injury after a shocking tackle from Jordan Pickford in the first half.
And defending champions Liverpool were denied all three points against 10-men Everton as Sadio Mane was ruled offside by VAR for what should have been the Reds' winner.
'Charles the Red' has told talkSPORT that they have "cancelled" their Sky and BT Sport packages and believe Liverpool's title defence is over.
The Liverpool supporter said: "It's gone. If you take the keystone out the bridge, the whole bridge will fall down, and that is what Virgil is; his influence is massive.
"I won't be watching it any more, that is it. I've cancelled my Sky TV, I've cancelled my BT Sport -- I paid the early cancellation fee."

'Charles the Red' made it clear that they wouldn't spend a "single penny" more on football unless VAR is pulled from the sport.
The Reds fan explained: "I support them, but I won't be spending a single penny on funding football until VAR is either sorted out or goes!"
