Ronaldo: 'All should welcome VAR'

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo supports VAR interventions in Serie A. “We should welcome anything that makes the referee’s job easier.”

CR7 scored a brace in today’s 2-1 victory over Sampdoria, including a penalty, allowing Juve to reach a record 53 points at the midway stage of the season.

“The team is doing very well, we had an excellent first half to the season, but must keep working to ensure we keep this kind of form in the second half of the season,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

Video Assistant Referee technology was used several times today, including to disallow a last-gasp Riccardo Saponara equaliser.

“I like VAR, because these are difficult decisions for a referee and we should welcome anything that makes his job easier.”
