La Liga to introduce video refs
Video referees are expected to be used in Spanish soccer by the 2018-19 season when they are fully approved by Fifa, La Liga president Javier Tebas has said.
According to SuperSport, Tebas was speaking after Sunday’s 1-1 draw between Barcelona and Real Betis, a game in which champions Barca appeared to have been denied a clear goal.
Video replays showed that after Betis’ Cristiano Piccini diverted Aleix Vidal’s pass towards goal the ball crossed the line by around a metre before defender Aissi Mandi slid in and scrambled the it away.
“The tests are already underway. We have been working on video referees for the last eight months,” Tebas told El Pais.
