Video assistant referees (VARs) stay”happy” with how their technologies has been used from the Premier League and don’t have any immediate plans to change their’high bar’ prior to intervention, Sky Sports News understands.
VAR was included in controversy after incidents at the weekend involving the Youri Tielemans of Leicester, the Sebastien Haller of West Ham, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish along with Newcastle’s Isaac Hayden.
Villa had a last-gasp equaliser ruled out afterwards Grealish was adjudged to have dived earlier in the movement, Haller had a penalty appeal turned against Norwich, Tielemans was not red-carded for a nasty attack on Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Hayden’s handball from the run-up to Fabian Schar’s goal in the home to Watford was missed.
The Professional Game Match Officials Board [PGMOL] will hold a meeting with referees to assess the most recent round of Premier League matches.
It is understood they will discuss when VAR is used but there are no plans to advocate any modifications to the’pub’ in place prior intervention.
Referees are to use tracks to review any decisions following pre-season advice to avoid slowing the sport down.
Additional monitor checks can take an average of about 90 minutes and also the PGMOL has encouraged its own officials to utilize the screen .
No referee has used the monitor in 40 Premier League games up to now.
The prior referee responsible for VAR’s debut has said supporters need to”trust” them following high-profile incidents this season.
Neil Swarbrick admits it might take up to adjust to VARs from the match.
“I think that it takes a couple of years [for use to it], to be honest,” Swarbrick told Sky Sports News last month.
“You will have those who like soccer the way it was and don’t need any changes, you get your purists who just like the referees to venture out, make decisions, and, if they make it right, get it wrong, they can live with that.”
