LRFEF and La Liga made public their decision to share with the spectators the conversation between the VAR referee and his counterpart on the field in those subjective actions in which the referee has to go to the monitor when reviewing. All actors in the world celebrate this decision and hope that it will help reduce the climate of tension that has been experienced for some seasons in Spanish football.
The first day in which it can be enjoyed will be on matchday 20 and in the Spanish Super Cup, both coinciding with the weekend of January 12 and 13. The operation will be simple, The RFEF will send the audios along with the images to La Liga and it will be the competition directed by Tebas that will send the material to the teleoperators.for broadcast, once the meeting ends.
It is this step that has received some more criticism, as fans expected that the audios and the game could be simultaneous. Even so, it is considered a step forward for La Liga, the RFEF and Spanish football, in general. The one who is not so clear that this measure is going to represent a great advance is Mateu Lahoz, who has raised certain doubts about the methodology that is being used to move the process forward.
We are not prepared for this decision as a football society. Steps should have been taken in a different way.
Mateu Lahoz disagrees with the forms
“We are not prepared for this decision as a football society. Steps should have been taken in another way, but this part of the management, where strange and hasty things are being signedthis is one more and it is left at the feet of the horses to the referees themselves“, explained the referee in ‘Tiempo de Juego’ on the COPE Network, while Atleti-Sevilla was being played.
The referees are not prepared, they have not been given training
“It is news that should have arrived now, but not in this way. The referees are not prepared, they have not been given training. “You are going to discover what football looks like from the inside, I have had the pleasure of doing it in recent years, but I think the form is not appropriate,” he said about the new decision that will be implemented next January 10 in the Spanish Super Cup.
Hopefully no one has to pay a toll. We are patching too much and that does not benefit football
Finally, the Valencian star also wanted to explain, in his own way, the positive part of having reached this agreement between RFEF and La Liga: “It will open our eyes more so that we can help the referees, so that the VAR is used.” much better”, although the last Spanish referee to whistle in a Champions League final also thinks about the situation that his former teammates must face now: “I hope no one has to pay a toll. We are patching too much and that doesn’t benefit football.”
