Confederations Cup: Video Assistant Referee System Is A ‘Shambles’

Posted by about 5 years ago

The use of video technology at the Confederations Cup has been criticised following Germany’s 1-0 victory over Chile in Sunday’s final.

Chile defender Gonzalo Jara appeared to elbow Germany’s Timo Werner in the face during the game, but got only a yellow card, even after the video assistant referee (VAR) system was used.

There were several contentious moments involving VAR at the tournament.

Former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon said the system was a “shambles”.

“If you look at sports that use VAR – we’re the laughing stock,” he said on ITV.

Referees can decide whether they want help from VAR, although other officials, including the video ones, can suggest he uses the technology. If he does, he has the choice of trusting the VAR’s decision or viewing the footage himself on a screen at the side of the pitch.

Referee Milorad Mazic used a pitchside screen to watch a replay of Jara’s challenge on Werner, and decided it was worthy of a booking and not a sending off.

Dixon added: “I was joking: ‘I bet he gives him a yellow.’ It’s not even a red. It’s a purple. It’s obvious.”
