“The war against VAR”

It’s a bomb that comes to us from England! Yesterday evening, Premier League clubs announced that they would vote, on June 6 at a general meeting, whether or not to remove VAR, video refereeing.

If no agreement is reached, he would see himself returning to the Premier League where his name is circulating, notably at Manchester United to take over from Erik ten Hag on the bench.
