The play will be played over and over again and will serve to attack technology in football. The referee annulled Boca’s goal and prevented Xeneize from opening the scoring against Atlético Mineiro for the Copa Libertadores.
It is a case to debate and to understand that VAR is still a tool. Not arrives to replace the referee and that it can be a dangerous weapon andn case of not being used correctly.
It should not be forgotten that football is also interpretation, they are moments and above all it is what happens on the playing field.or. Live. It is not always enough with a repetition and with what slow motion shows.
Colombian referee Andrés Rojas did everything wrong. He could never handle the situation, he let the Mineiro players force him to make a decision and he reviewed the VAR with all the players on his back.
There is no technology that can save a judge who had neither personality nor determination to consider what he really believed. He was convinced that it was not a fault and a simple image in slow motion made him change his modification.
Without falling into the discussion about whether they wanted to benefit or harm a certain team, it is time to think about how the VAR should work and understand that in this way it will end up being more of a problem than a solution.
With all the resources that exist, it is inadmissible that errors of this type continue to exist and Conmebol must take action on the matter. Take care of football and that these images stop being a habit.
