Former referee Luca Marelli explained why Milan forward Rafael Leao’s record-breaking goal wasn't disallowed. ‘VAR can't intervene at kick-off’.

Milan scored the opener in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo after 6.76 seconds against, the fastest goal in the history of Serie A and Europe’s leading leagues.

Marelli insists the goal should have been disallowed and explained why VAR didn’t intervene.

Milan scored the opener in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo after 6.76 seconds against, the fastest goal in the history of Serie A and Europe’s leading leagues.

Marelli insists the goal should have been disallowed and explained why VAR didn’t intervene.

“Let’s nip a possible controversy in the bud,” he said. “On Milan’s first goal, Leao has a foot in the other half of the pitch.

“In theory, the goal should have been disallowed, but VAR doesn’t have jurisdiction over kick-off.”
