The future of technology in football
Arturo Vidal has claimed that he feels he would have won two more Champions League trophies if VAR had been introduced earlier.
There has been plenty of discussion over the Video Assistant Referee system over the summer following its performance at the World Cup.
While the system could sometimes still end with the wrong decision, there were many times that it was correctly used.
That has seen VAR’s reputation boosted and that could lead to widespread use among the top leagues and competitions.
UEFA is one of those that are now looking to introduce the Video Assistant Referee into the game and it looks likely that VAR will be used in the Champions League this season.
The system will be in place for the later rounds of the knockout stage and will almost certainly create some talking points.
Vidal feels cheated
Now, new Barcelona signing Arturo Vidal has also been talking about the introduction of VAR in the Champions League.
Though, he certainly seems bitter that it hadn’t been introduced earlier.
That is because that the player has claimed Bayern Munich and himself would have two more Champions League trophies to their name if it was introduced earlier.
“With the VAR, Bayern would have two more Champions [League trophies],” he explained to Mundo Deportivo.
It was clearly a jab at Real Madrid, who have knocked Bayern Munich out of the Champions League twice over the past two years.
Some questionable refereeing decisions were made then and should VAR have been in place, Vidal might actually be right.
Now though, that will hopefully not be the case going forward.
