Scaloni, combative: VAR, technology in Europe and criticism on social media

The coach of the Argentine national team, Lionel Scalonipointed out today against the VAR and public opinion, by emphasizing that the referees are in a relaxed situation, because if they make a mistake they have support to be able to modify it.

Scaloni also questioned the quality of the Latin American technology that was implemented to use VAR on the continent and said that the system used in South America “is not of the same calibre as the one used in the Euro Cup.”

With the arrival of the tool at international and national competitions, referees find themselves in a relaxed situation, because if they make a mistake they have support to be able to modify it.

However, the decision is made by three people in a camera booth who have three different opinions on the same play, but the person who has the decision-making authority is the person on the field, with various factors influencing them (the stands, the players and the coaching staff).

VAR has arrived in football stadiums with the intention of providing greater precision to the referee and helping him when making a decision that changes the equation of the match.

But it also opened the door to criticism from all three sides of the football scene (players, fans and coaches).

The Argentine coach does not show a position against the worldwide implementation of the tool that can help a referee in a tense moment, as often happens in other cases.

“We don’t have the technology they use in Europe yet”Scaloni said at the press conference.

The coach finished with a particular phrase: “Human error still exists, regardless of whether there is VAR. It will always be there and I completely rule it out”.

The “Scaloneta” is in a great sporting moment in terms of results. But it also expresses various complaints against popular opinion, due to the criticism that Argentina received after winning the world championship in 2022.

“Anyone can write anything on the internet. In Qatar they said the same thing. When someone wins, people tend to say that they are favouring the winner. I don’t think so.”the coach concluded.
