Just when you think you've seen the most thing in football another one shows up

A referee in South American league was said to have awarded a controversial penalty using VAR, despite the technology not being available in the league. According to the news, the referee consulted the forth official and awarded a penalty using VAR gesture as an explanation for the decision🤣

I still haven't gotten a glimpse of what really happened but isn't it bemusing that a referee will award a penalty through VAR gesture despite not yet implemented in the league?

Maybe the ref was either way ahead of his time technology-wise to have deployed a technology that was unavailable in the said stadium.

Outrage from Bolivar's players then

forced riot police to intervene on the pitch and defuse the situation.

Did you watch this match at all?
