Keith Hackett tells Howard Webb to fire the VAR official who gave Brentford a goal against Arsenal
Keith Hackett, a former Premier League referee, says that Lee Mason should be fired because of the mistake he made during the game between Arsenal and Brentford.
Mason didn’t do enough to find out about the controversial goal that let the Bees tie the game at the Emirates.
After Leandro Trossard had given Arsenal the lead, Ivan Toney scored with a header from close range.
Replays show that the offside rule was broken when Christian Norgaard sent the ball back across the field for Toney to score.
After a long VAR review that took more than three minutes, the goal stood.
Hackett, who has been in charge of Premier League games for more than 20 years, has told the new PGMOL boss, Howard Webb, that Mason should be fired.

He said Howard Webb is in charge of the PGMOL right now. One of the first things he should do is get rid of Lee Mason as the permanent VAR operator.
Last weekend, Mason did a bad job as a referee when he let Brentford score even though they were out of bounds. This is the kind of decision that the VAR should make right.
