Potter blows hot about VAR: I am not VAR supporter; human error is part of football

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has stated that he does not like the VAR and it is also a subject to human error too as we can see this has been going on for a very long time.

Here is what he said;

“I have no problem with VAR necessarily,” he said on Friday. “I don’t think I would have had it in the first place because I think I’m a bit of a romantic traditionalist. I quite like that the referee and the linesman are there to make a decision and whatever mistake happens, happens. I think that’s good.

“But I understand that we want to make it so that all the decisions are correct. Then I go… do we really want every decision to be correct?

“Because there’s an element of human error, there’s an element of that that happens in a game for us all to talk about and get annoyed about – it’s part of the game.

“I think it would be boring, are we going towards eventually computers are gonna make the decision?

“Because I hear people talk about that they need it to be consistent, the only way for it to be consistent is for human beings not to make the decision, because every human being will see it in a different way and the football action will be so different, there won’t be the same one.

“So this drive for consistency is strange when you consider that humans are taking part in the game.”
