Nijhuis makes a lot of VAR

Referee Bas Nijhuis appeared after the end of Feyenoord-Heracles Almelo pecked in front of ESPNs microphone. The arbitrator declined a goal early in the match, but would have visibly not done that.
Nijhuis initially let the game continue after Alireza Jahanbakhsh handed out a body check to Giacomo Quagliata, after which Luis Sinisterra scored. De Tukker still made the
walk of shame to the VAR screen and disapproved the hit. โ€œWalk of shame, yes… โ€œ, says Nijhuis. โ€œThen I see it and I think: come on, say. It must be clear and obvious to bring the referee to the side and not for this kind of thing.โ€
In the end, he approved the goal anyway. โ€œBut I got more of the procedure. We agreed: only step in if it
s clear and obvious. If I was VAR myself? Then I wouldnt intervene. Because these are situations: an referee may or may not whistle for that.โ€
โ€œOn the field, I went along in that course, but in the quiet I came into the dressing room: you can be glad that the doors are still in the dressing room. I was really angry, I was really angry. I just shouldn
t have gone to the screen. Im gonna take that to myself, but I do suck it. Now Feyenoord wins (2-1, ed.) and no one talks about it. But if it stays 1-1, you do have a defining mistake.โ€

Bas Nijhuis makes a lot of fun after the intervention of the VAR ๐Ÿคฏ โ€œYou can be glad that the doors are still in the dressing room. I was really mad.โ€ #๏ธ โƒฃ #FEYHER
