‘Serie A might give up VAR’

The head of Italian referees has admitted for the first time that “I don’t know if VAR will be in Serie A next season.”

VAR has yielded mixed results on its top-flight debut in Italy, with the advantages it offers arguably being outweighed by controversial decisions and confusion over when it is consulted.

“I don’t know if VAR will be in Serie A next season, but I think it will be and we’re working so that it can work better,” Marcello Nicchi told Rai Sport.

“Only at the end of its first season in use will we understand where it can be improved.”
