Van Gaal wants video technology introduced as Man Utd miss out on clear penalty

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has advocated the introduction of video technology in football.

The Dutch manager felt that his side were not awarded a clear penalty at the stroke of half-time in the win over Manchester City on Sunday.

However, he refrained from criticising referee Michael Oliver for the decision which denied Marcus Rashford from winning a spot-kick under a clumsy challenge from Martin Demichelis.

He said: "I have seen it from the bench and I think I can say it was a penalty but the referee has it very difficult, he has to decide within one second.

"I think we have to help the referee with a video referee, I have been saying that already for 20 years.

"Now I think it shall turn a little bit with the new board in FIFA, so I hope that the video referee shall come."
