In a number of countries, there is much criticism of the use of the videoscheidsrechter, but FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino doesn’t have too much of it. The Swiss acknowledge that there is room for improvement, but the value is a definite improvement.
“No, We can’t do that if the system is everywhere and works perfectly, but it is quite normal for something in the football 150 years and have been waiting for. The VAR is certainly a step in the right direction,” said Infantino on Wednesday at The Olympic Channel, a Podcast.
“When you use the word ‘progress’ to look up in the dictionary, then it is easy to nd that the definition of ‘better than before’. Before the introduction of the VAR, and there were a lot more of the wrong decisions have been taken, and now we are able to correct it. I am pleasantly surprised by the impact of the videoscheidsrechter.”
