Torino President Cairo: “VAR Should Be Extended To Managers Or Captains So They Get At least One Review A Game”

Torino president Urbano Cairo has called for the VAR procedure to be reformed in an interview with Radio Anch’io Sport that would allow managers or team captains to get one review per game.

It makes me angry when the referees don’t use VAR. It’s absurd that VAR is there and the referees don’t use it. I was convinced by VAR and was happy with its introduction, even if we were initially penalised by it, but it was a new tool that we were still getting to know. The fact of not wanting to use the VAR seems incredible to me. We were penalised heavily last season, so it’s a serious issue.

We have 12 points and we’re three points away from the Champions League, but the referees have angered us in four of our eight games, from the penalty not given to Iago Falque against Roma to Berenguer’s sensational goal ruled out for an offside that wasn’t there and a red card not given to Koulibaly. There was also a goal given to Frosinone on Friday, which shouldn’t have counted as there was a foul on the goalkeeper. With those three extra points, we’d be level with Lazio.

“I understand that it takes time for VAR to be understood, but its use should be extended so managers or captains so they get at least one review a game. I believe in it a lot, but if it’s there then let’s use it more.”
