OPINION: Should VAR Continue To Be Used Or Be Scrapped?

The full meaning of VAR is Video Assistant Referee. It is a new football match official that reviews decisions made by the head referee through the use of video footage and a headset for communication. This was introduced specifically to minimize the errors made by human referees that causes substantial influence on matches.

However, since the introduction of VAR into football association, it has been so much dynamic in it's decisions whereby giving unfavorable rulings sometimes. And on the other hand causing setback within the teammates.

VAR works majorly in four categories of decisions which include; Goal/No Goal, Penalty/No Penalty, Direct Red Card and Mistaken Identity.

Recently, the decisions made by VAR is making a lot of fan and team mates raise eyebrows, part of which was when a goal was disallowed and a football got angry, making him to abandon the field. This really needs to receive attention.

However notwithstanding, the VAR becomes favorable at the side of the opponent that is about to concede goal. VAR's decision anyway is dynamic. It should either be scrapped or given a maximum attention that won't cause commotions or result complications.
