Mohun Bagan Complain About Refereeing and Absence of VAR
The green and maroon brigade were defeated in the I-League in the Kolkata derby against East Bengal 3-2 before the Mariners returning to winning ways with a 1-0 win over defending champions Minerva Punjab on Wednesday.

Kolkata: Giants Mohun Bagan on Thursday wrote to to All India Football Federation (AIFF) President Praful Patel complaining about incompetent refereeing and have also touched upon the importance of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in modern day football.

The green and maroon brigade were defeated in the I-League in the Kolkata derby against East Bengal 3-2 before the Mariners returning to winning ways with a 1-0 win over defending champions Minerva Punjab on Wednesday.

Club director Swapan Sadhan Bose has complained that the team's fortunes "suffered immensely due to some extremely poor and incompetent decisions by the referee and linesman."

"Modern day football across the globe has witnessed the uses of VAR and goal-line technology. But it's missing in Indian football," Bose wrote in his letter.

"The I-League is evenly poised as any of the top seven teams can become champions. We do not desire any favours from the AIFF but expect the game to be played fair," he added.
