Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that top managers across the Premier League and Europe have offered a VAR solution which could impact Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs.
Marginal offside decisions have become one of the biggest VAR issues in recent weeks, with Wolves’ loss at Liverpool recently highlighting how frustrated players and fans have become with the utilisation of the technology in regards to offside decisions.
That frustration was not wiped away with the start of a new year as Jack Grealish had a goal ruled out for Aston Villa at Burnley due to one of the most marginal offside calls of the season.
But Klopp has revealed that managers from around Europe including bosses of Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs have come up with a potential solution for the offside VAR problem after a discussion at a recent UEFA meeting.
“It’s not the biggest problem in the world,” said Klopp, per Mirror Football.
“We want to have clarification and right decisions, offside we get that now, the only problem is it feels like half an hour until the toenail is offside. But that’s the decision.
“We had a manager meeting with UEFA and it was decided to make the line bigger. I would like that. I don’t know who would decide that. That it doesn’t take so long until a decision would also be better.”
