Premier League Referees Are Not Ready For Video Assistant Referee -Sarri

Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea boss explicitly stated that VAR did not come to Chelsea’s aid in their EFL Cup semi-final first-leg defeat to Tottenham on Tuesday, when the technology was used to award Harry Kane a penalty where Kane was flagged offside at Wembley before being scythed down by Kepa Arrizabalaga, but referee Michael Oliver changed the decision following a consultation with his video assistant.

He said “The problem is not the referee or one or the other. The problem is they are not ready to use the VAR,” Sarri told a news conference.

“It is not easy because if you look at the linesman he stopped his run and for the player and this is a signal of offside.

“But it is normal. They use the system for the first time in the League Cup and so they need only to get used to using the system.

“I don’t like VAR but it is only my opinion because we risk to change the atmosphere in the stadium. You score but have to wait for 30 seconds to celebrate.

“I am used to playing with the system because in Italy we used it starting three years ago. “I am used to playing with the system because in Italy we used it starting three years ago. I don’t like but it is only my opinion. I prefer like now in England.”
