Luis Enrique: VAR the best thing to happen in football

Spain boss Luis Enrique believes the introduction of VAR technology ‘is the best thing that has happened to football’.

The video technology system was used at this summer’s World Cup and was introduced into La Liga this season, with decisions such as penalty calls, red card decisions and offsides under review.

“The introduction of VAR has been fantastic, I have really liked it,” Enrique is cited as saying by Marca.

“I like the idea of going back through phases of play and I think it reduces errors and benefits everyone.

“It is the best thing that has happened to football.”
