We all know that VAR has not been Arsenal’s friend this season but did you know that it also seems to be giving former Arsenal man, Sven Mislintat, a major headache in Germany, too?
Now working as Stuttgart’s Sporting Director, Mislintat was less than impressed when his side conceded a late equaliser after what he thought was a clear foul on one of his players.
“I have to say clearly, for me it is a clear foul on Pascal, Mislintat said. “It is now several times this season that we find that we are disadvantaged. In situations with the VAR or with the referee not intervening, with a few penalty situations that we did not get. We have never made it a topic, but it is enough. You have to say that clearly. For me it is a clear foul.”
At the weekend, Arsenal actually got the benefit of a VAR call, an event so rare this season that it prompted the Arsenal social media team to change the header on their Twitter profile to:
You know the VAR is always shitting on us when for once it's in our side and arsenal admin did this for the club's header pic.twitter.com/5psszEhMYd

They have since changed it back, but it’s about the most Arsenal have done or said about the situation despite it being clear that PGMOL are seriously up to something when it comes to our club.
