Wenger defends automatic offside
According to coach legend Arsene Wenger, room video referees like the ill-fated ‘Kolner Keeler’ will soon be out of date – at least when it comes to offside decisions. The French asks that the computer do this in the future.
“The Next Big Development in Arbitration”
According to Wenger, FIFA’s director of global promotion, FIFA is planning an offside revolution. Arsenal FC’s longtime team manager said at a press conference that he had made a proposal to improve the procedure. And why? Wenger’s entire video guide – Xenober takes a very long time to hack.
His idea: In the future, offside decisions will be made automatically by the computer only without the intervention of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR). Wenger’s goal: Early in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, VAR will be discontinued when it comes to offside.
“We need to keep making progress in the speed of decision making, especially when it comes to offside,” the 71-year-old said. It is good that the video assistant does not interfere in the 2022 World Cup if the football world asks itself: offside or not?
“He was bound by secrecy,” said Wenger, as FIFA director. “But this will be the next big development in refereeing.” (March)
