erling haaland expresses frustration over nathan ake's controversial goal against fulham, imagining how he would feel if manchester city were in the same situation

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has expressed his frustration with Manchester City’s controversial goal against Fulham, admitting he was “fuming” with the decision. The incident occurred during a recent Premier League match between Manchester City and Fulham.

The controversy arose when Manchester City’s Nathan Ake scored a goal in the 18th minute of the game. The goal came after a corner kick, with Ake heading the ball into the net. However, replays showed that the ball had come off Ake’s arm before going into the goal.

Haaland, who was watching the match, took to social media to express his dissatisfaction with the decision. He posted a picture of the incident on his Instagram story with the caption, “FUMING! This is not right.”

The goal was allowed to stand despite the clear handball, leading to criticism from fans and pundits alike. Many felt that the goal should have been disallowed due to the handball offense.

This incident adds to the ongoing debate around the use of VAR (Video Assistant Referee) in football. VAR was introduced to help referees make more accurate decisions by reviewing incidents using video footage. However, there have been instances where VAR decisions have been contentious and have led to further controversy.

Manchester City went on to win the match 2-0, with Bernardo Silva scoring the second goal in the 26th minute. The victory helped them maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table.

Despite the controversy surrounding the goal, Haaland’s frustration is unlikely to have any impact on the outcome of the match. However, it highlights the importance of fair and accurate decision-making in football and the need for improvements in the implementation of VAR.

Both Manchester City and Fulham will now turn their attention to their upcoming fixtures as they continue their respective campaigns. Manchester City will be aiming to maintain their strong form and secure the Premier League title, while Fulham will be looking to avoid relegation.

It remains to be seen whether this incident will lead to any changes or discussions regarding VAR and its usage in football. The debate around VAR is likely to continue as the sport seeks to strike a balance between maintaining the flow of the game and ensuring fair play.
