VAR has proven to be a bit of a mess in the Premier League this season, truth be told.

Turns out the Italians aren’t so keen on it either.

Serie A began using the current video assistant referee system in 2017/18 but it has been criticised by managers and they’re not set to look into a potential future change to the system.



Italian football’s governing body, the FIGC, has now asked Fifa for a system where clubs can challenge decisions and ask for technology to intervene, similar to the current systems in place in tennis and cricket.

The FIGC says it is “convinced that, by continuing the path already undertaken, football can be brought into a dimension ever closer to the millions of fans, without affecting the referee’s authority but rather by providing him with concrete tools”.

The proposal has been put to the International Football Association Board (Ifab), with the FIGC saying they are ready to experiment with the use of challenges.

The subject could be discussed when Ifab holds its Annual General Meeting in Belfast on 29 February.
