Southampton manager Mark Hughes was left frustrated by a VAR decision that ended the Saints' Carabao Cup run on Tuesday night. Southampton went on to lose the game via a penalty shootout after the VAR decision went Leicester City's way.
Southampton visited the King Power Stadium for their 4th round Carabao Cup tie with Leicester. With the game tied 0-0, the visitors thought they had snatched a late winner through Steven Davis in the 82nd minute, only for it to be denied by VAR. Referee Roger East denied the goal due to a handball by Saints forward Nathan Redmond in the build-up to the goal.
Leicester went on to win 6-5 on penalties as Hughes was left frustrated at the use of technology, insisting the decision was wrong.
"But if the guys behind the screen looking at a situation slow it down to the nth-degree, then something that is not deliberate in real time then looks deliberate when it is not.
"From our point of view, it is a valid goal that should have stood and we should've won the tie. I suppose the more the system is used the better it will get."
