In times that not just top football leagues in Europe, but also ones in smaller football countries are either already enjoying or still experimenting with the benefits of allowing technology to help match officials in their work, Spain’s LaLiga remains… stuck to the past, with their officials dragging their feet doing their best to delay the use of technology in the country for as long as possible.
Barcelona hosted Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday, they won 4-0, Luis Suarez scored twice, actually, three times, only… one of his goals (from an impressive rabona) never counted, because LaLiga lacks not just VAR, but even goal-line technology.
I didn’t see it, but with the help of technology, you’ll know if the ball has gone in or not, regardless of whether the VAR is used or not
Ernesto Valverde told reporters at Camp Nou. Why Spain remains so… backwards on this front? The Barcelona coach admitted
I don’t know why it is not used in LaLiga
before making a guess, which, if true, makes the officials of the league that boasts both Real Madrid and Barcelona, not to mention Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, and other great teams, look even worse.
The equipment must be very expensive, but it’s absurd that we don’t have it. We’re late and it shows
the Blaugrana coach said.
