‘I Don’t Like It’, Eden Hazard Is Ready To Get Rid Of VAR As Soon As Possible, If He Could remove it.
According to Eden Hazard, if he had the power, he would do away with the video assistant referee (VAR) entirely from football.
The Real Madrid player discussed the detrimental effects VAR has had on the game since its implementation. The Belgian added that mistakes by referees are inevitable in any sport.
In an interview with ESPN, a reporter posed the following question to Hazard: “If there was one aspect of football that you could change—whether it a regulation or something else—what would it be and why?”
Having trouble coming up with a response at first, Hazard responded: “About the game? Give me a moment to consider.
The Madrid player ultimately chose to remove VAR as his response.
You know I don’t really like this VAR, he said. I will take it out because I don’t like it.
Then when asked why, he gave his justification.
“Because it is part of sport that officials make mistakes and you know, people simply keep moaning, that is why they developed this VAR,” stated Hazard.
“You know, after a goal, we are waiting and it seems like we lose a little of this ecstasy when you score a goal,” the Belgian continued. You always say, “There’s VAR,” so I would take it out.”
To make every choice as apparent as feasible, VAR was employed. But ever since the technology was first deployed, it has been a contentious issue.
VAR is frequently discussed in the Premier League because it takes too long to reach a judgement in comparison to other leagues. Instead of praising the goal itself, fans ultimately celebrated a VAR ruling.
Rio Ferdinand, a former defender for Manchester United, discussed VAR last month.
“Sometimes it’s OK, but it’s meant to help situations, but instead it’s muddying the waters,” he told Metro. They quickly look at the screen during international competitions, and the efficiency and pace appear to be better than they have been during Premier League matches.
“I like a referee in the middle who consults with his linesmen before making a decision. It enhances the narrative and the conversations at the bar.
Hazard demonstrated his class on the field for Madrid while scoring in a 2-2 draw with Club America, a Mexican team. Hazard scored his first goal since January with the goal.
After a tumultuous period at the Bernabeu that has been plagued by numerous ailments, Hazard is eager to finally demonstrate his talent to the Madrid crowd.
Madrid will be under pressure to defend its crowns as the reigning champions of Europe and Spain going into the new campaign.
