0 22

Brentford manager Thomas Frank, speaking ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace, on the VAR controversy surrounding their equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank  believes that his side would have gotten a win against Arsenal last week but thier performance was altered by the decision of the VAR.

Brentford was a able to get a draw against the Gunners and shared points as it was beleived that the Ivan Toney’s equalizer was an offside goal.

“It has massively overshadowed our performance. We were more than good enough for a point and if there could have been a winner, it should have been us.

“Nobody is talking about the Bryan Mbeumo situation where he scores, which was also a human error.”

On the club’s run of 10 games without a defeat in the Premier League: “Our overall performance is good; you can see that in the players’ faces. We talk about the good place we are in and we need to continue. Our 10 game unbeaten run is well deserved but now it is about doing it one more time against a very good Crystal Palace.”

Meanwhile Premier League stated that Video Assistant Referee Lee Mason has left the officials’ body PGMOL and will no longer work on Premier League games, following his high-profile error in Arsenal’s draw with Brentford.

Mason had worked as a Premier League referee for 15 years and oversaw 287 top-flight matches during that time, with his last coming during the closing stages of the 2021/22 season. However, the 51-year-old, while working solely as a VAR this season, has twice been dropped from working on a round of Premier League fixtures after high-profile errors.
