Courtois Backs VAR Introduction to Champions League
Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has backed the introduction of Video Assistant Referees (VAR) into the Champions League ahead of their last-16 first leg at Ajax Amsterdam.
“I like VAR. At the World Cup it worked well,” Courtois told a news conference on Tuesday. “Everyone was in favour because it was carried out well, and in Spain, too. Sometimes you need to know the rules and fans watching perhaps sometimes don’t. It’s there to help football. Sometimes it goes against you, but in order that football is fairer, it’s good to have it.”
