Thierry Henry against the VAR: "Destroys the joy of the game" | Israel today


The French striker spoke at a conference in London against the use of the virtual tool • "We have a lot to learn. Today you don't know if you can celebrate a goal you scored or not"

The former French footballer, Thierry Henry, spoke today (Thursday) against the use of VAR, at least in its current state and with its current speed.

The retired striker believes it takes too long to reach a decision, ruining the goal celebrations.

"In football we are still behind, we have so much to learn," he said during the Leaders Week Sport Business conference in London.

"What I can see in American football, rugby, tennis cricket or whatever, it's immediate. With VAR, what I'm annoyed about is that it's not fast enough. Another thing that's very difficult for me is that I used to score goals as a player, and today you don't know if You can celebrate or not. It destroys the joy of the game."

This year, in the Champions League, UEFA started using semi-automatic offside, and asked what he thought about it, Henry said "It can help.

As long as it's quick and we have an explanation, that I can see that the player was out, you move on."
