There Need To Be Improvement In The VAR – Frank Lampard.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard revealed that there needs to be a “big reflection” at the end of the season on how to improve the video assistant referee system.

Lampard was speaking after Tottenham had an equaliser ruled out against Sheffield United on Thursday because of a Lucas Moura handball in the build-up.

VAR adjudged the ball brushed Moura’s arm as he fell to the ground before Harry Kane scored.

“I didn’t think it should be disallowed,” said Lampard.

“When I listen to managers complaining or moaning, I understand it. Emotionally, it’s really tough to take.

“I also have sympathy for the referees and, in this case, VAR officials because there are rules that have been laid down.

“It was one where common sense could have been involved but, if the rule book states something, then the handball is given.”

He added: “VAR has improved us in ways but there are ways to improve it.

“I think [we need] a collective sit-down at the end of the season with everybody – referees, managers, players and anybody involved in football who loves the game can have an input – to try to get it closer to where we want to get it to.”
