VAR: Matic demands quicker decisions - FCNaija
FA Cup By: Ayodeji Tunde | 19/02/2018
The video assistant referee (VAR) system has made more enemies than friends since it has been deployed to aid decision making across some of the top leagues in the world.However, while Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is happy to see the technology used in their Fifth Round FA Cup tie against Huddersfield, he has demanded that he wants it to be quicker.A Juan Mata strike was ruled out by the VAR during United's 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup on Saturday. After a long delay and a technical issue, Mata's effort was canceled out.Matic, 29, said he would not mind the VAR to be part of games going forward, but the Serbian midfielder was unhappy with how long it took to make the decision. "We saw the goal and we are not sure it was offside but the referee made a decision and they saw it on TV and we are happy that we scored again and that's it," he said.
