Jose Mourinho has said Manchester United star Paul Pogba was fortunate not to be shown a straight red card early on as Tottenham fell to a 3-1 defeat on Sunday evening.
When asked whether Tottenham were fortunate when Edinson Cavani’s effort in the first half was ruled out due to an infringement earlier in the build-up, Mourinho switched it around to focus on another incident altogether.
“I think we were unlucky because maybe Paul Pogba should get a red card for an elbow on Serge Aurier,”
“If you are going to speak about VAR maybe we have to go deeper than that.”
When asked to give his view on United’s disallowed goal though, Mourinho went on a rant about the use of VAR this seaosn.
“I don’t know know anything anymore. In football you don’t know anything anymore,” he added.
“I watched the Fulham-Wolves games; I don’t understand anything anymore.
“It’s difficult to understands. Sometimes you get, sometimes you don’t get. But it’s very difficult sometimes to anyalyse even as a coach.
“I don’t know how to comment. I don’t know.”
He added: “You don’t celebrate a goal because you are afraid when you see the lines of the offside – which was not the case in this game but in some matches – obviously you don’t understand very well if it is offside or onside.
“Then the contacts you don’t know. It’s difficult but to speak about that after a defeat i don’t feel very comfortable.”
