LaLiga president Javier Tebas has had his say on the controversial issue of VAR. He believes the technology has to be explained more.

It was only a matter of time before Javier Tebas would have been forced to make a comment on the contentious issue of VAR.

VAR has been the subject of debate in the Spanish top-flight since the restart. We have witnessed a number of questionable decisions.

The trending issue was further fueled when Gerard Pique and Barca president Bartomeu hinted at a particular bias for Real Madrid. Los Blancos have scored a number of penalties of recent.

As eyebrows continue to be raised over the matter, LaLiga president Javier Tebas dropped a comment on the matter.

“I would give VAR a seven out of 10 rating, it still needs to be explained further, it has technical flaws,” Tebas admitted in an interview with AS.

Rumors of Neymar re-joining Barcelona never seem to end. Elsewhere, Xavi Hernandez continues to be linked with a return to Camp Nou despite a recent extension with Al Saad. Tebas was asked to make his pick for his preferred choice to happen if he was Barca president.

“If I had a choice between Neymar coming back or Xavi returning to Barcelona as coach, I’d pick the one which led to Messi staying in LaLiga Santander,” he added.
