News24 –  Rio Ferdinand blasts VAR officials after decision to award penalty against Danny Rose


 It’s advantage Tottenham in their all-English Champions League quarter-final tie against  Manchester City after a 1-0 win on Tuesday night  Mauricio Pocettino’s side weren’t favourites going into the first leg but take a lead into the return fixture thanks to Son Heung-min’s late strike  With less than 15 minutes to play, the forward was played in behind City’s defence and managed to keep the ball in play before cutting back inside and firing a low shot into the net    His goal sent fans inside Tottenham’s new stadium into hysteria to cap off a night that they won’t forget anytime soon     Spurs arguably deserved the win as Pep Guardiola’s Man City failed to really get going throughout the game   Son seals first leg win for Spurs Salah escapes red card during Liverpool v Porto Rashford close to new Man United deal  But Sergio Aguero did miss a golden opportunity for the visitors in the first half as he had a penalty saved by Hugo Lloris    Many have suggested that justice was served by the save as the spot-kick was awarded in very controversial fashion    Danny Rose was penalised for handball inside the area, but that decision was only made after a VAR review    At half-time, BT Sport pundits debated the referee’s call and came to the conclusion that there was barely any grounds for awarding a penalty    Rio Ferdinand, in particular, blasted the use of the technology, claiming that the people making the calls ‘don’t understand football’    “You need people in that box who have played the game,” the former Manchester United defender said on BT Sport  “These people do not understand football. You need to have the people that understand football if they’re making these decisions  “That is clear cut to me, it’s not a penalty.”  The decision clearly didn’t sit well with Ferdinand but his opinion will no doubt be one shared by many football fans
