Man City star has echoed his frustration on Var.

Gundogan won't be the last to express his frustrations with the effect the VAR technology is having on the game.

Gundogan says VAR is taking emotion out of football.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has spoken about the negative effect VAR is having on football as he is convinced the technology is taking a lot of fun out of the game.

Pep Guardiola's Citizens haven't had it easy with VAR this season after being denied two goals in their opening three matches and also seen two penalty shouts turned down due to use of the technology.

"VAR is changing football not only for the players but also for the spectators and everyone who loves the game," Gundogan said as The Sun quoted.

"Unfortunately it takes away the main reason why we all love football, and that's the emotion.

"I'm not a big fan even though we can't deny that it helps the referee. But the big problem is that even when an incident has been referred to VAR, there is still not a clear judgement.

"After the games we are still discussing whether it was a goal, a penalty or offside. And I can't see this changing even with VAR.

"That is why I don't think it makes sense, but some people who run the game have decided it is going to help the referee and it's something we're just going to have to accept because we can't change right now.

"I'm sure it is going to help us in the future but it is also creating a lot of problems and I'm not sure how we can solve it."
