Rohr backs Video Assistant Referee for World Cup

Super Eagles chief tactician Gernot Rohr has said he supports the introduction of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) at the forthcoming World Cup in Russia, saying it will ensure fairer officiating and help the referees.
“I’m all for it (VAR),” said Rohr in an interview published by South African football newspaper Soccer Laduma.
“It will bring justice to many situations and it will help the referees.
“Of course, there are some small hiccups in the beginning as with any new system. I have noticed some small issues in the Bundesliga and in other countries where it has been implemented, but it will be more accepted over time.”
Rohr disclosed that all 32 World Cup finalists were put through the VAR at a recent FIFA workshop in Sochi in Russia.
