UEFA's attempt to clarify a new rule around goalkeepers jumping off the line in penalty situations has backfired following Chelsea's shootout loss to Liverpool.

This clarification of the rules is certainly not clear and will do little to ease the pain of Chelsea fans recovering from a cruel Super Cup defeat to Liverpool.

Furthermore, the media outlet also state that DFB (German Football Association) will not be using VAR to the letter of the law in regards to the new penalty rule change.



The Reds won the European Super Cup last night (Wednesday) thanks to a 5-4 shootout win over Chelsea, with Adrian making the decisive save to deny Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

ESPN have since reported that UEFA Chief Refereeing Officer Roberto Rosetti said before the Super Cup that 'goalkeepers will only be penalised by VAR for leaving the line if it’s a blatant and violation of the new law'.

Olivier Giroud had given Chelsea the lead but Liverpool hit back and led 2-1 in extra-time thanks to two Sadio Mane goals.

Jorginho levelled for the Blues after Abraham was brought down by Adrian before a penalty shootout took centre stage.
