FIFA Chief of Global Football Development, Arsene Wenger, has said football will move on from the VAR system to automatic offside calls.
The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) has gained more haters than proponents due to the disconnected inconsistency between the technology and human official decisions on the pitch.
“The automated offside I think will be ready for 2022,” Wenger told FIFA’s Living Football television show, as quoted by Sky Sports.
FIFA could be ready to implement an automated system to judge offsides for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, says Arsene Wenger.
