The words of Gareth Southgate, England manager, on the use of VAR in the world of football. The details
Gareth Southgate He spoke about the use of VAR after the problems in Tottenham-Liverpool From Premier League.
THE WORDS – «I didn’t agree from the beginning and I don’t like it. We should just accept the referees’ decisions. As a child, I always thought that the referee’s decision was final, whether I agreed or not. But it is unlikely that we can return to a world where there is no technology as part of the decision-making process, even if everyone once went to the pub and complained about the referee and continues to do so despite innovations. So I’m not sure what we solved by introducing VAR. However, I know if he wasn’t there people would come back and say maybe this could have been resolved, but when I’m in the stadiums I feel like nobody necessarily has 14 minutes of injury time to decide anything would like to be viewed as off the field.”
