Mark Goldbridge fumes as Rasmus Hojlund denied first Manchester United goal by millimetre VAR decision

Mark Goldbridge fumed as Rasmus Hojlund was denied his first Manchester United goal after the ball went out of play by millimetres.

United are facing Brighton at Old Trafford and were in need of a goal after former Red Devils star Danny Welbeck netted the opener.

Hojlund thought he scored his first United goal

Rashford’s cross was adjudged to have crossed the line by VAR

And starting for United for the first time was their £72million man Hojlund, who had the ball in the net.

However, Marcus Rashford could not get to the ball in time as he tried to cross it from the byline.

VAR intervened and adjudged that the ball had crossed the line and ruled the resulting goal out.

But it left talkSPORT pundit Goldbridge fuming, who vented on social media: “That’s a nonsense.

“They’re guessing about that ball being out 100% because they don’t have the tech. So they should go with the goal.”

And fans have torn the United fan to shreds, with one replying: “Mark your ball knowledge is better than this… clearly out.”

Another wrote: “It’s over the line mark give it up.”

And a third said: “No mark just admit it that was out… we need to do better.”

But not everyone disagreed with one fan saying: “United really should consider replacing ETH with Goldbridge.”

United are in dire need of a good result after a week of turbulence off the pitch.

Jadon Sancho has been told to stay away from the group after falling out with Erik ten Hag.

While Antony has been given extended leave after being allegations of abuse, which he denies.
