Paraguay goalkeeper from Puebla de México, Antony Silva, became the center of attention in the MX league after his side’s elimination against América. As is known, white and red failed in arbitration in that match as they overturned a closed penalty via VAR for suspected overtaking.

The Paraguayan spoke about it in an interview with Versus Radio and gave his views on the application of technology in football. “I think VAR is for other things, like fouls and guys, for penalties, I don’t see that technology is useful, it’s frustrating, but sadly it’s part of football today” said one of the National Team captains .

One of Silva’s legs was not on the line in a controversial game, so VAR overturned his intervention, the penalty had to be replayed and it was the American goal. His compatriot wrote on Twitter and hinted that “they are destroying football.”

Regarding the possible sanction by Liga Mx on his publication, Silva pointed out that: “I’m not saying anything that is inappropriate, I don’t see any reason for the sanction” he explained.

Silva arrived at Puebla in the 2021 season, became a great figure at the institution and is insured at the club until 2023.
