VAR would have prevented Ronaldo’s red card: Allegri

Football News: Juventus manager believes their star man Cristiano Ronaldo could have prevented the Red card against Valencia in the Champions league if VAR was in use.

VAR would have absolved Ronaldo after his clash with Jaison Murillo.

The 33-year-old left the pitch on the 29th minutes in Juventus’s first Champions League clash with Valencia, in the recent past during that match he puts his hand on the back of the Murillo’s head, with the match official behind the goal post gave that as an offence.

The German referee consults with his assistant referee about that incident and show him a straight red card.

After that incident, the star man left the field with tears, but the Juventus head honcho maintains that he could have avoided that red card against Valencia if VAR was there.

Allegri stated: "I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee make the right decision,"

"Mostly because it was the 29th minute in the first half in a difficult game, to find yourselves with 10 men for a red card, that was not right.

"It could have complicated the situation for us, but the guys have been very good. They played well as long as they had to, until (we were) 2-0 and then we defended with an order, leaving them a few shots on goal, but nothing special."

Though Juventus played the match with 10 men still they came out as a winner against Valencia, Miralem Pjanic scored two goals for them from the spot kick and gave them 2-0 win over their counterpart.

Right now in group H Juventus sits at the second position behind Manchester United, who won their first match comfortably against the Young Boys by 3-0 goals.

In their next Champions league clash Juventus will face Young Boys at Turin and then they will lock their horn for the English giants United.
