With bad decisions costing teams penalties and red cards every week - as well as seeing season-ending challenges, like Jordan Pickford’s on Virgil van Dijk, go unpunished - VAR has brought a new level of controversy to football. The Premier League has already reviewed its rules multiple times this season after complaints from Arsenal, Southampton, and Chelsea, and while some teams seem to benefit from the system every week, like Leicester and Man United, others seem to be constantly losing points to VAR.
With all this in mind, this week’s FD: Explained is our take on how VAR could be improved. From the nonsensical handball rule, to the time-wasting offside system, we examine just what makes the process so slow and inconsistent, and how we can fix it.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
