“Thank you VAR” – Leicester City player thanks VAR for cancelling Chelsea’s goal against Leicester

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans saluted the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for coming to his side’s aid in the dying minutes of their 1-0 final victory over Chelsea.

After Tielemans scored for Leicester City, Ben Chilwell equalised for the Blues only for VAR to cancel the goal for offside.

“Thank you VAR! Really, what an amazing thing that is!” Tielemans told VAR.

“It’s a tough decision but when you have to make it, you have to make it. Maybe it was tight but it was offside, and you have to give that call.”
