Young Brentford fan appears to offer the referee money during VAR check against Leeds

A young Brentford fan appeared to wave money at the match referee during a VAR check against Leeds United in a bizarre yet hilarious moment. Check it out below:

The controversy of VAR was the main talking point of Brentford's big 5-2 win over Leeds on Saturday.

The use of video review infuriated Jesse Marsch, who was sent off following his outburst.

But VAR favoured Brentford as they were awarded a penalty in the 30th minute after a long check.

Robert Jones initially played on when Luis Sinisterra challenged Ivan Toney.

However, he was asked to review the incident between Sinisterra and Toney.

The referee eventually overturned the decision, awarding a spot-kick - which was put away by Toney, who went onto score two more goals to complete his hat-trick.

And during the VAR review, a young fan seemed to wave money at Jones.

Marsch blamed 'lack of respect' from the VAR decisions for his angry reaction on the touchline.

"I was speaking with the fourth official, trying to be as respectful as I possibly could. Even when a penalty was given that I probably didn't think was a penalty and then when you don't see it reciprocated, it's the respect," he exclaimed.

"That lack of VAR visit is a lack of respect in the end.

"I was calm even when Brentford were given the penalty, even though I didn't see it right away, but normally when the phrasing is 'clear and obvious' and it takes that long to watch it and look at it then for me, it's not clear and obvious.

"When I saw it at half-time, I didn't believe it's a penalty and if it is, it's an incredibly soft one. I was told by the referee committee and the league in our managers' meeting before the season started that the threshold for penalties was going to go up so that was not, for me, represented by that decision.

"Then there's an action where I think Summerville is actually more of an egregious foul and it doesn't even get looked at for VAR, I'm clearly dissatisfied. I've got to figure out how to have discussions with the league or with referees to help understand how some decisions get made."
