first_imgItalian referee Gianluca Rocchi has recently shared his thoughts on how to improve the controversial VAR.Rocchi thinks the VAR needs a review following recent questions about its lack of clarity in football games.“There’s no referee who can be against it,” he told Football Italia.“I did four Roman derbies without sleeping for three nights, but I enjoyed the last two. Our approach doesn’t change but I know that if there’s technology, it can fix a mistake I make.“The real problem is the line of intervention. Sometimes you get involved too much, sometimes too little, but you can remove or add pressure on the referee from the VAR booth.“We always say in meetings: the VAR doesn’t have to be a friend of the referee if you love [the referee], you unconsciously risk not wanting to make a fool of them and not correcting a mistake, which could save a game.Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.“Still, VAR isn’t slow motion: it must correct any clear errors and not butt into any questionable situations.“The secret of good refereeing at the World Cup was also that: I was sceptical, but splitting [the roles] worked.“Nothing changes with VAR, it reinforces the concept [of refereeing], but what might not be clear for me maybe is for a Coach or fan because that incident could change the game.“It’s all about subjectivity. As for handballs: if I deem one voluntary and but a colleague of mine doesn’t, who is right?“It’s both or neither of us, so it’s easy for anyone who wants to make controversy to do that.“Nowadays communication is crucial, but not everyone has broad shoulders to explain an error: a young man on TV can get himself into trouble, so they must be protected.”last_img
