‘Bring on the 3D VAR!’ Man Utd cancel £72m NEW fixture as fans clamor for a new fixer

Rasmus Hojbjerg (Manchester United) was denied a goal on his debut for Manchester United.

Eric ten Haag’s men lost their 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) home game against Brighton 1-0 on Saturday (Sept. 16) at Old Trafford in Manchester, England.

United had a very tumultuous September A-match break. It was marred by the aftermath of Jadon Sancho’s protest, Anthony Martial’s assault allegations, and injuries.

The first game after the A-League break was the first game of the season. United conceded a goal to Danny Welbeck just 20 minutes into the game. In a moment of crisis, Hui Lun stepped up and opened the scoring in the 40th minute. His first goal on the EPL stage was celebrated. However, the video assistant referee (VAR) ruled that the ball had crossed the endline in the buildup, and the goal was disallowed.

The Daily Star, a British newspaper, reported that “Hui Lun celebrated, unaware of the situation. But the joy faded when the goal was disallowed. According to the outlet, fans commented: “Hoi Lun’s goal was important,” “Where is the technology they use at the World Cup,” “Another rule for Japan, another rule for us. They should introduce 3D VAR, which is needed now more than ever. 스포츠토토

Meanwhile, Hoi Lun joined United from Atalanta (Italy) ahead of the season. The transfer was worth £72 million. However, he has been on the sidelines for some time due to injury. He made his first appearance as a substitute against Arsenal on April 4. It was his first start since his EPL debut, but he tasted defeat before a goal was disallowed.
