Radamel Falcao is not happy with VAR

 

Monaco striker Radamel Falcao said that the use of a video assistance system (VAR) by arbitrators has a negative impact on football. The words of the athlete are quoted by the Daily Mail.

Falcao’s Displeasure was caused by the fact that during the final match for the Coupe de la Ligue final with Paris-Saint-Germain, the judge used the VAR twice, what helped the Parisians to win the trophy.

The athlete told that first the referee reviewed the time with a penalty for four minutes, four more he spent when deciding whether to cancel my goal. And Falcao was totally amused by the fact that eventually only two minutes were added to the match. He added that saying that sometimes reviewing the video does not help solve all the issues and that it kills football.

In the final of the tournament, the capital team defeated Monaco 3:0. Falcao spent 90 minutes on the field and scored a goal, which then was cancelled by the referee. The cancellation was explained that the striker had been in the offside position.

Video repeats will be fully used for the first time at the World Championships in 2018. This initiative was approved by the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
