Amid a whirlwind of criticism, FIFA President Gianni Infantino has confirmed that leagues have the right to remove VAR if they deem it necessary.
We are tired of hearing about VAR, really.
We want to talk about football, the good, the bad and the ugly, but not the misuse of technology that is costing our beloved teams points and ultimately our enjoyment of the game we love so much. .
Regardless of what you think about the VAR, whether you believe it is being used incorrectly but will eventually turn out to be a good thing, or you want it removed from history, it is safe to assume that you are currently not enjoying the way officials they operate around it. nowadays.
As reported by the BBCBoth Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish have called for it to be eliminated in its entirety, and they probably aren’t the only two in the country wanting that result.
As unlikely as it may sound, the BBC has quoted FIFA President Gianni Infantino as confirming that individual leagues have the right to discard VAR and choose not to use it if they so choose:
“The VAR is not an obligation, it is there to help. Those who do not want to use it are not obliged to use it. “
It remains to be seen whether the Premier League, or any other league, will choose to do so.
