VAR will get better – Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid coach, Diego Simeone believes the Video Assistance Refereeing system goes beyond which side of justice you fall on.

LaLiga Santander has opted to use the system for the 2018/19 season, whilst Serie A and the Bundesliga both introduced it last term.
“The system goes beyond the side of justice, although it’s clear there are nuances which need improving,” he explained.

“In Italy it was well established last year, but there were also controversies.

“In the World Cup the system was very good, aside from the penalty in the final which may be debatable, I think it could be better.”

Los Colchoneros haven’t enjoyed the start to the domestic season than many expected they would after such an extensive recruitment drive, however the former River Plate coach believes a period of improvement is coming.

“Our start with the UEFA Super Cup and Valencia was bright, then we had a downturn in form,” he admitted.

“From there the team has started to improve, starting with the Eibar match.

“We showed more strength in Monaco and we hope to continue in that way.”
