Coutinho still believes in VAR technology

The Brazilian footballer was sad that his team had three goals disallowed by the VAR in their Copa America match.

The Brazil national team drew 0-0 with Venezuela in today’s 2019 Copa America match.

And the team had three goals disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Technology.

But for footballer Philippe Coutinho, the VAR was right, and he sees the technology as something positive for football.

“I don’t know if VAR was fair today because there were two difficult calls, but they must have been rightly ruled out because I think that VAR is positive for football,” the playmaker was quoted by Sport.

“For Brazil, it was a difficult game against a good side.”

“They have good players and I think it will be like this for the rest of the tournament,” he added.
