Arsene Wenger set to help Premier League make better use of VAR.
Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is set to come to the aid of the Premier League as they struggle with the inconsistency of VAR.
Wenger recently landed a new role in football as he was named FIFA’s new Chief of Global Football Development a few weeks back.
VAR has made a controversial entry into the Premier League this season and the early signs show that the referees need all the help they can get.
Every matchday fans have had to deal with controversial decisions from VAR. Arsenal has been on the receiving end of some wrong decisions too after they were denied a winning goal in their game against Crystal Palace.
Mike Riley who has been tasked with helping the Premier League integrate the technology has admitted that there have been four correct calls overturned by VAR this season, Wenger would be hoping he can help to make that better.
According to the Mirror, Riley says he is looking forward to discussing VAR and its problems with Arsene Wenger next month when IFAB meets in Belfast.
Wenger is a member of the International FA Board’s Football and Technical Advisory Panels who make the changes to the game and he would be looking to use his position to help improve the Premier League’s use of VAR.
It is a shame that nothing can be found for Wenger at Arsenal. The club needs all the help it can get right now.
