Bernardo Silva wants VAR in the Champions League following Manchester City’s quarter-final exit at the hands of Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola’s men were roundly trounced 3-0 in the first leg before suffering a 2-1 defeat in the return clash at the Etihad on Tuesday night.
However, things could have panned out differently when a Leroy Sane goal found the back of the net to make it 2-0 to City on the night.
But the goal was disallowed as Sane was judged to be offside – even though the German winger was clearly on.

- Do England have the best pool of right-backs in world football at the moment?
It caused a furious response from City, who saw boss Pep Guardiola sent to the stands at half time for his angry protests.
The Premier League champions-elect then conceded yet another goal to Mohamed Salah before Roberto Firmino wrapped up the game to make it 5-1 to Liverpool on aggregate.
And Silva, who started the game, now wants VAR in Europe to avoid repeats of mistakes in the future, saying: “Thank you all for the support and amazing atmosphere tonight!
“We gave everything we could so no regrets. Next year we’ll be back to try again! Congratulations to @liverpoolfc and good luck on the semi-finals.
“Now let’s go win the premier league and end the season with a title @mancity.
“PS: @championsleague could you guys start using the VAR next season? It might be useful.”
