Maradona: ” Video assistant referees is beneficial for football”


Celebrity NewsThe Argentine ex-football player Diego Maradona affirmed on Tuesday that the use of the technology of video assistant is beneficial for the soccer, although he appreciates that it did not exist in his time of soccer player.

Maradona acknowledged that his famous goal against England at the 1986 World Cup would have been canceled if it had been reviewed via video.

“I started to think and, of course, with technology that goal would not have counted, they would not have been validated,” Maradona said, referring to the goal that came to be known as the “Hand of God.”

Also, Maradona admitted that another move of his had caused controversy of having existed the technology in his time of the player.

“At the 1990 World Cup, I also used the hand against the Soviet Union to clear a ball in our line. At that moment the referee also did not see her, we were lucky. But at that time there was no possibility of using technology, today is another story, “he said of a match for the group stage of the 1990 World Cup, which ended with a 2-0 win in Argentina.

Video assistant referees (VARs) was used last month at the Confederations Cup in Russia, and FIFA wants to accelerate testing to implement it in next year’s World Cup.

In that sense, Maradona considered that football “can not be left behind” with the use of technology.

“If technology advances and all sports use it, how can we not consider it for football? The technology brings transparency and quality, gives a positive response to the team that decides to attack and takes risks, “said the ex-player.
