Jose Mourinho: ‘With Video Assistant Referee’s, we win this game 2-1’

Jose Mourinho believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s disallowed goal would have been overruled with VAR’s technology this morning. 

Zlatan converted a penalty to save a point for United in the dying seconds against Everton this morning. The Swedish striker was ruled offside after scoring a headed goal a wicked Ander Herrera cross.

“We scored two legal goals but I tell you with a smile on my face because I am not upset with the linesman,” Mourinho told the BBC.

“A really difficult decision for him, only video assistant replay could help this.”

The English Premier League is yet to introduce Video Assistant Referees, although a number of leagues around the world are beginning to introduce the new innovation.

Was Zlatan offside?
