Manchester United interim manager Ralph Rangnick has criticized the VAR decision after their 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.
The defeat left United’s hopes of a top-four finish in limbo, but the German felt there were decisions in the match that should have gone her way.
“I think we did better but in the end the result was a disappointment. I think we bounced well from the early goal and have many chances in both halves to score more goals.
“I thought the weak part of our performance today was that we didn’t defend well in and around the penalty area.
I felt there were three very unlucky decisions due to VAR. For me, Arsenal’s third goal was clearly offside. Cristiano’s second goal was not offside. We weren’t too happy with the VAR decisions today. “Mohsen’s offer, but a disappointing result,” Rangnick said after the match.
United are now six points behind Arsenal in the race for the top four, having played a game more than Arsenal, and the German was asked if his top four results were now over. “Absolutely sure. For me, even before the match, it was not very likely but after today’s result it is over.”
The club’s interest will now shift to their next game as they have to face Chelsea on Thursday.
