Frank Lampard has slammed VAR as “not good enough” after Tottenham midfielder Giovani Lo Celso escaped a red card in the London derby with Chelsea.
The Argentine made a challenge on Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta in the second half of the contest at Stamford Bridge, with the incident reveiwed by the video assistant referee in Stockly Park for possible serious foul play.
To the dismay of Chelsea fans, the decision made by VAR was for no red card, with Lo Celso avoiding punishment despite making no contact with the ball.
It has since been confirmed by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited(PGMOL) that a human error was made, and that Lo Celso should have been sent off.
But Chelsea head coach Lampard was not impressed, and made his feelings clear in his interview with BT Sport after the game.
“It is not good enough,” he said.
“You need to shout, because that is not good enough.
“The whole world saw that. I hate to come out and call it a red card, but that is a leg breaker.
“I am not saying anything about the referee on the spot, because it is hard there, but it is not good enough.”
