“They need help”: EPL referees to use video reviews from next season
VAR is headed to the Premier League.
The EPL will introduce video reviews from next season after clubs showed support for the move.
VAR has already been used in English competitions such as the FA Cup.
Former Cardiff defender Rhys Weston told Macquarie Sports Radio it’s the referees who will benefit.
“They need help,” Weston said.
“Once it clicks, once they get the flow of it, I think you’ll see a dramatic change in the standard of officiating.”
But Weston said the system needs to be efficient and avoid interrupting the game for too long.
