Furious Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz tells refs to 'use VAR CORRECTLY' after conceding controversial penalty vs Man Utd

FURIOUS Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz has ordered referees to 'use VAR CORRECTLY' after Manchester United's controversial penalty during Friday's game at Old Trafford.

The Brazil midfielder, 22, gave away a crucial spot-kick after he was adjudged to have caught Paul Pogba in the box.

With the game evenly poised at 1-1, Bruno Fernandes stepped up to score what turned out to be the match-winning penalty.

Villa boss Dean Smith had already called the penalty 'dubious', suggesting Pogba had 'tripped himself'.

And Luiz has taken to Twitter to reveal his fury, clearly of the opinion ref Michael Oliver should have called for VAR.

Luiz ranted: "I see this video, I can't believe it was a penalty.

"I always support fairer football, with fewer mistakes, but then I stop and see these types of moves.

"If we have VAR to help, let's start using it CORRECTLY.

"These mistakes can define the future of clubs!"

Luiz's Twitter rant came shortly after his own boss called the decision into question.

Speaking after the game, Smith said: "My view was it was a penalty from where I was stood.

"I thought Douglas had got too tight with Pogba and he went down.

"But I've just gone in the dressing room and seen it back and there's a lot of doubt.

"I think he's tripped himself up.

"Similar to Douglas when he was running back in the first half – he tripped himself up.

"For me there's enough doubt to send [Oliver] over the screen but he doesn't get sent over to the screen.

"I'm confused but I feel he tripped himself over."

Fernandes' goal stole all three points for Man Utd and saw them draw level on points with league leaders Liverpool.

In fact, Man Utd are TOP of the league based on games played since the Portuguese star arrived, three points clear of Liverpool.
