Speaking in an interview with RMC, AS Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas indicated that he supported the use of VAR.
“I am for VAR. I think that it is going to improve football. But if you look at my recent action (which he was suspended for 3 matches for after an accidental stamp on Lyon right-back Léo Dubois) with VAR with slow-mo highlights, we are going to lose the essence of football. If we watch everything in slow-motion, everything could be interpreted as a foul. So, I can understand that after looking at VAR, I was given a red card. Yes, I can understand it, because I touched him and that can be dangerous.”
