I Don’t Like VAR – Henry

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has expressed his dislike for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

The former French international said the technology is draining “joy” from the game, adding that football “has so much to learn” regarding its use.

Henry was speaking at the Leaders Week sport business conference at Twickenham Stadium.

“With VAR, what I get annoyed with is it’s not quick enough.

“Then it’s still the decision of someone in a truck or wherever they are, because it’s not VAR that makes the decision, VAR is just there to recall the situation.

“What’s annoying is when you get lost in translation, when someone tells you something, another one, the rule changes the week after, it can become tough. We have a lot to learn in football,” Henry said.
