Graziano Cesari, the former referee, has commented on the incident involving a goal by Henry in an Inter-Verona match, speaking with Sportmediaset.
The veteran referee criticized the Video Assistant Referee’s (VAR) decision during the controversial incident.
Cesari stated, “Arnautovic initially grabbed the shirt of Magnani, but when the Austrian fell, both of Magnani’s hands were on the opponent’s back. In these cases, a foul is usually called.”
He further suggested that the VAR should have intervened in the situation. These declarations do signal that variances in the application of rules during football matches continue to generate debate.
