Arsene Wenger, head of the development agency of the International Football Association (FIFA), said that an automatic system could be introduced at the Qatar World Cup next year to help referees judge the situation.
The sport’s governing body, IFAB, announced in March that it will further investigate the rule and plan to test a semi-automated technology that will reduce the inspection time of video referees (VAR).
On the other hand, Wenger has previously said that he supports a system that automatically determines ambushes, which can directly inform the assistant referee of the ambush.
I think it will be ready next year and I will try my best to use it because this is how the assistant gets the information immediately. “ Wenger stated in The Times that the semi-automatic technology proposed by IFAB provides more information for the VAR system, and the referee will judge each situation accordingly.
The legendary Dutch striker Marco van Basten said in a speech in March that it is necessary to abolish the small rules in football because it is really good for the game.
