Conte: 'Lost confidence in VAR'

Inter boss Antonio Conte admits he has lost “confidence” in VAR this season but insists the technology is still ‘important” for football.

VAR was completely ignored for flash points in Napoli-Atalanta and Roma-Napoli midweek, while some felt it could have been used before Juventus’ match-winning penalty against Genoa on Wednesday.

"It is not being used in the same way by everyone," Conte said at a Press conference.

"It is important for the big calls. Last year I was more confident with it, but today we don’t understand how it should be used because there’s so much insecurity and instability.

"If I was a referee and had the technology, I would make my decision and then put it in the hands of the VAR. I would officiate with more serenity."

Inter face Bologna on Saturday and Conte has been impressed with Sinisa Mihaijovic's side, who narrowly lost 3-2 to Cagliari in their last fixture.

"Despite their defeat to Cagliari, they [Bologna] are a team in form. We will play an intense and excellent side."
