The VAR continues to unleash criticism and flattery since its implementation widespread in the world of football. Lately until Ceferin, president of UEFA, has publicly expressed his disappointment at the proceedings and the protocol of video arbitration in different countries. His main criticism lies in the gameplay and requires that there be a minimum of 15 centimeters of margin when analyzing a play. Well, your requests have been answered in Denmark, with the implementation of an innovative VAR with nuances to its pleas.

“He must intervene much less than he does in the Premier League. On average, the VAR will only enter the field screen once every three games and will last 25 seconds per intervention“said Michael Johansen, the chairman of the DBU arbitrators committee in statements to the Danish media Politiken. In this way, the reality, or at least his initial intention, is clear: if in 25 seconds the video arbitration room has not been able to see whether or not there is an offside play, it will not be considered a manifest failure and the original decision of the collegiate will be respected.

The Danish Super League will incorporate the VAR next season. It will be late, but the waiting time has facilitated an analysis of its operation in other countries and an introduction taking into account its pros and cons. “When a VAR judge spends two minutes playing with television images to find a possible three-millimeter offside it becomes ridiculous. Ridiculous because there are too many uncertainties. We will train the Danish video judges to only intervene in a clear and manifest error. We do not believe that the big toe in advance is“Michael Johansen closed.
