Long VAR delays have become the norm for Premier League fans claims Infantino

Gianni Infantino, the president of Fifa, defended the technology on a day when law changes were revealed and said that making fans wait for VAR decisions “adds another layer of adrenaline”.

At the annual congress of IFAB, football’s rule-making body revamps the handball law, the implementation of “semi-automated” offside rulings, and a potential redrawing of offside were decided upon, with each change scheduled with the VAR in mind.

Infantino said that this had added to the spectacle as Long VAR delays have become the norm for Premier League fans.

according to The Guardian, he said, “Rather than taking things away it adds, I would say, another layer of adrenaline in the game, ”. “Now if there is a doubt you check, you wait, you see and that’s the adrenaline that makes football how it is: the waiting for a result.”

“I think that VAR is giving and bringing more justice to the game. It’s making the game cleaner, it’s helping the referees in taking correct decisions. If maybe it takes away the joy of some, it gives the joy to others when a decision is changed. So the joy if you win a game is still there.”

“You will not hear me say anything negative about VAR. Justice is everything.”
