FOOTBALL fans were quick to “pass” on a new job opportunity at the PGMOL following the latest VAR controversy.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was fuming after his side’s defeat at Arsenal on Sunday, while Gooners believed they were robbed of a second half penalty.
The first controversy came when Havertz went down after darting between Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Casemiro.
Referee Anthony Taylor initially pointed to the spot, only for him to change his mind after being sent to the pitch-side screen for an Off Field Review.
Arsenal fans pointed to the contact between their man and Wan-Bissaka to argue that the original call could not have been a “clear and obvious error” – but Aussie VAR Jarred Gillett recommended a review after Taylor told him he had given the offence for a trip by the United defender, clipping Havertz’s left heel.
The video of the incident then showed that there was clear distance between Wan-Bissaka’s foot and the Arsenal ace, who was then felt to have inadvertently instigated the subsequent contact by moving his left leg off a straight line – as Taylor agreed when he took his second look at the clash.

Dutchman Ten Hag was then raging about the “camera angle” of the offside call which ruled out Alejandro Garnacho’s late goal in normal time.
The incidents have been hotly-debated by pundits and supporters alike since, although Premier League referee chiefs have backed EVERY key decision made in Arsenal’s controversial win.
Now it has emerged that the PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials Limited) are advertising for a new Communications officer to join their team.
But after all of the fresh drama regarding officials, a lot of supporters were quick to make light of the vacancy after it was shared on social media.
