During the post-match analysis of the World Cup game between Brazil and Switzerland, football manager and pundit Slaven Bilić was asked what he thought about a somewhat controversial VAR decision during the match.
When discussing whether Switzerland’s goal in the 1-1 draw should have been allowed, Ian Wright and Gary Neville argued that a foul had taken place.
But when Bilić was asked, he said “If I was Brazil manager, I would ask for a foul… if I was Swiss manager I would say no foul. So it’s one of them.”
Told he was sitting on the fence and pushed to make a decision between the two, he simply said: “To be fair, I don’t care”, prompting his fellow pundits to fall about laughing.
Viewers were absolutely loving Bilić’s blunt honesty – and even more so the fact that the Croatian manager managed to get a smile out of Roy Keane:
Bilić, you legend 😂 Pundits obsessed with debating VAR, claiming that Switzerland's goal should have been disallowed for a small push. They ask Slav, he says "if I managed Brazil, I'd ask for it; if Swiss, I'd say no". When pressed… "to be fair I don't care" 🤣 #WorldCup
