“VAR can kill football”-Falcao.

Monaco captain Radamel Falcao has described the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system as something that could “kill football” after it twice benefitted Paris Saint-Germain in their 3-0 victory over Monaco in the Coupe de la Ligue final on Saturday.Edison Cavani scored an eighth-minute penalty after Kylian Mbappe was fouled in the area by Kamil Glik, forcing a lengthy review, and Falcao appeared to have pulled one back in the 37th minute with PSG up 2-0 but the system ruled he was offside.The Columbian told Canal Plus immediately after the game that the decisions were a “disgrace,” and he didn’t back down when speaking to reporters.“It’s frustrating when in two cases where there has been VAR, it has served to help PSG,” Falcao said. “Sometimes, after looking at the images, nothing is clear and this kind of thing can kill football.“Reviewing the penalty, they have lost four minutes, and with my goal, another four, but they only added two [at the end of the half].”
