Premier League May Be Stripped Of VAR By FIFA



The English Premier League is on the verge of been stripped of VAR license if it fails to adopt the International Football Association Board’s VAR protocols.

VAR raised controversy on New Year’s Day when Aston Villa had a goal ruled out for offside, with Wesley’s heel adjudged to be offside.

Following the controversy surrounding the decision of VAR, former Sky Sports commentator, Richard Keys, noted that FIFA are ready to intervene.

Keys who took to his Twitter account wrote: “Hearing that FIFA are going to give PL an ultimatum to adopt IFAB VAR protocol.”

“At worst they can take the license away and stop them using it.”

IFAB’s general secretary, Lukas Brud, said last week that officials on the pitch and monitoring cameras, should not become “too forensic” over offsides or any other decisions.
