FIFA consider broadcasting talks between referees and VAR officials


FIFA may contemplate broadcasting conversations between referees and VAR officials to the crowd and to TV audiences at future tournaments The controversial VAR system has been declared a success by officials at this World Cup with chairman of the FIFA referees committee Pierluigi Collina saying it has been ‘almost perfect’ during the 48 group stage matches in Russia At a press conference in Moscow on Friday, Collina was asked whether it would be beneficial to spectators if they could hear the conversations taking place between officials as decisions were being reviewed on the monitors RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Even the best ideas have flaws, so give VAR a chance in.

It’s something we will look at it in the future I don’t think you should ever say no to something.’You should look at pros and cons and experiment and see how things are ‘ Ahead of the knock out stages that start on Saturday FIFA revealed on Friday that 335 incidents have been checked by VAR so far and that this has led to an overall success rate of 99 3 per cent in terms of correct decisions. Fourteen decisions have been overturned by VAR so far with three being upheld Collina said: ‘VAR does not stand for perfection. There will still be mistakes.’But 99 per cent is very close to perfection’ It emerged on Friday that the Brazil FA and the Morocco FA have complained to FIFA about decisions made during the tournament But Massimo Busacca, director of FIFA refereeing, said: ‘We don’t have a single scandal here so far and that is one of the most important things ‘We want to stop referees relying on luck. We want to put and end to things that could ruin their careers ‘For the referees it is sometimes impossible to be close to the action. For 89 minutes we are doing a good job VAR is here for the other 20 seconds.’  The refereeing assessors at the World Cup are constantly reviewing decisions and admitted on Friday that officials had been told to look out for holding at corners after repeat offences against Harry Kane in England’s opening game against Tunisia were missed England subsequently were awarded two penalties in their next game against Panama Collina added: ‘There were some incidents that suddenly disappeared. We had some holding  ‘But this almost disappeared in the next match, or was punished by a proper disciplinary decision ‘We noticed. We intervened. We fine-tuned. This is our task.’Despite evidence to the contrary, FIFA believe there has not been wide spread dissent by players in response to VAR interventions Asked why players were not being booked for making the VAR ‘TV screen’ gesture in the faces of referees, Collina added: ‘I don’t think it’s very blatant ‘Its not the gesture, it’s how it is made. ‘Sometimes body language is used to use a word you don’t know in another language If its not made in an arrogant manner it has to be appreciated that the referees don’t have to be strict and waste a yellow card ‘The referees should be praised and not criticised. It’s not mandatory.’There have been 3 4 yellow cards per game in Russia so far which is in line with an average domestic game There have been two red cards so far and 24 penalties, seven given with the help of VAR This is compared to only ten penalties at this stage in the previous two World Cups in Brazil and South Africa   RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Even the best ideas have flaws, so give VAR a chance in.
