There has been a lot of controversies lately about the use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology in the English Premier League.

Starting at the beginning of the 2019-2020 English Premier League season, the competition in England has been using Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology.

And there has been a lot of controversy about the use of technology during matches.

“They have taken their time to use it and wanted to see how it works,” IFAB secretary Lukas Brud told The Daily Mail.

“The VAR concept is still at the beginning.”

He explained: “We talked to other sports and everyone told us this is a 10-year project until people really understand how it works.”

“Referees report back to us that this is something they have always wanted, for various reasons.”

“Every single referee has said to us ‘for us, it’s great. We don’t have to be afraid of killing our careers’,” he said.

“They will have someone to fall back on and they love it.”
