VAR Was Introduced To Stop Real Madrid From Match Fixing



Former Barcelona star, Arturo Vidal has slammed Real Madrid, accusing them of match fixing.

According to him, the Spanish capital city club is the reason the video assistant referee (VAR) was introduced.

Vidal is of the belief that the referee helped Real Madrid achieve their three-peat Champions League success.

Real Madrid won the Champions League in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

And Vidal is of the opinion that the hat-trick of wins was because Los Blancos were helped by the referees.

Vidal told TNT Argentina that FIFA introduced the VAR to stop the officials from favoring clubs.

“Real Madrid were favoured by the referee twice in their 3-peat, when they beat Bayern Munich in 2017 and 2018.

“Everyone saw it. I think that’s why they then introduced VAR, they couldn’t fix games like that anymore,” he said.
