Spain’s referee committee’s head has highly accepted the use of video technology in La Liga to reduce the mistakes that take place. They have recognized that they will have to make sure that the same criterion is used by every official.
Carlos Velasco Carballo, the chief of referees have stated that this is a positive improvement and that are quite happy with the performance that is being put forward by the referees. According to him, it hasn’t damaged the essence of football. There are many time revisions and interventions that have persevered the fluidity of the game. However, they will have to work on the aggressive play, prevention, and also on the unifying criteria.
The players and the coaches have also welcomed the use of this video technology even though this has been called into question in regards to the decision taken in the match of Real Madrid against Real Sociedad and the win of Atletico Madrid over Levante. Real Madrid had been really angry with the appeal of penalty and had been turned out without consulting the VAR as Vinicius Junior, the Brazilian forward tripped in that area.
In the meantime, Levante has given a statement where he asks for the clarification after he conceded a penalty for an accidental handball in the game against Atletico Madrid hadn’t been reviewed. The protocol of the league stated that VAR that had been introduced at the start of the season, should only be consulted when a referee makes a clear mistake in his judgment.
