‘I’m sick’ – Jamie Carragher highlights new VAR problem after Liverpool’s Curtis Jones decision

Jamie Carragher insists he has “sympathy” for Curtis Jones after the midfielder was sent off during Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Jones initially received a yellow card for a foul on Spurs midfielder Yves Bissouma in the first half.

However, following comments from video assistant referees Darren England and Dan Cook at Stockley Park, referee Simon Hooper was quickly advised to review his decision on the pitchside monitor.

Then, after seeing a slow-motion replay of the tackle, Hooper turned his initial yellow card into a red and Jones was sent off.

As it stands, the 22-year-old will miss Liverpool’s next three Premier League matches against Brighton & Hove Albion, Everton and Nottingham Forest.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Carragher admitted he had a “big problem” with the way Hooper was advised to review the VAR officials’ decision and revealed he felt sorry for the Reds midfielder

 Liverpool are right and Howard Webb has no choice

Well. Luis Diaz, VAR and PGMOL – this is really the only way to start. It’s a shame, the whole story from top to bottom.

I have nothing about this PGMOL statement. Their silence when it happened spoke louder than words; they knew they were wrong.

It’s so ridiculous, it’s ridiculous. And this is the best they could come up with? It’s not lit at all.

It was so easy to set things straight right away by getting in Simon Hooper’s ear, telling him to stop the match, calling him back and awarding Diaz’s goal.

Local authorities are not completely immune from criticism either. Usually the flag goes up later, he was so quick in the draw that he’s faster than John Wayne in the old westerns.

He had raised his flag so quickly. I’ve been reading ever since. The club itself is right: sporting integrity has been damaged.

Ultimately, it is not enough to relieve the referees for one or two matches; it could cost Liverpool the title.
