UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said: “We are ready to use the VAR sooner than initially planned and we are convinced that it will be beneficial for our competitions, as it will provide valuable help to the referees and allow us to reduce the number of decisions wrong. ” The leader confirmed in Dublin to start using the VAR after the winter break. “If we can do it, why wait?”
The incorrect decisions in the Champions have always been on the part of the Catalans, as in the semifinal of 2009 against Chelsea, the game that is remembered as the biggest steal in the history of football and made Josep Guardiola famous by winning the sextet in that season. A total of 4 clear penalties that were not called in favor of Chelsea and that opened the way to the “Iniestazo”.
Not only against Chelsea the Barcelona was benefited. It all started in the 2005-2006 season. The referee Markus Merk annulled a goal to Milan in the semifinal for a supposed foul that only he saw. Barcelona would end up being champion of that Champions League,
In the seasons 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2013-2014, the aids came to leave the opposing teams with 10 players and whistle penalties nonexistent.
The 2018 season has been marked by Messi’s statements “This year we have Champions, we’ve been three years out in the quarterfinals and the last time was the worst of all because we came with a result in favor”.
Now with the implementation of the VAR from the 8th of the end, the Champions looks far for those led by Valverde who have not cared about the VAR of the Santander League to continue doing their things, but in Europe, for the good of football, we hope that adhere to the regulation.
