‘Nobody wants to look stupid’ - Yedlin laments VAR intervention after first home goal for Newcastle

The defender netted his first goal at St James’ Park on his 101st appearance for the club

Newcastle United’s DeAndre Yedlin feels that VAR ruined his enjoyment of scoring the equaliser in Saturday’s victory over Bournemouth.

Yedlin netted a flying header to equalise the game three minutes before the break, but the goal was only given after a VAR check ruled that the versatile defender was just onside.

The American found the back of the net for the first time in 14 months after scoring away to Manchester City, with the goal against Bournemouth his first ever at St James’ Park.
