Close to retirement, Casillas is nonetheless a very attentive observer of world football, and its problems.
A former player to help the referee?
For example for a hand or a snap in the surface, a referee will give a penalty while another will not. Sometimes, men in black even manage to make two different decisions in the same match and for the same fault: OM, beaten at Amiens (1-3) in Ligue 1, knows something.
To read – OM-ASC: Germain-Guirassy, a penalty that raises questions …
It must be said that, despite the VAR, the central referee is still the last decision maker, and he has only his colleagues on the truck to help him. But Iker Casillas has a solution to put an end to the problem. Or, at least, to avoid some problems of interpretation.
Proponents that in VAR, ademas del arbitro that analiza las imagenes, haya tambien an ex jugador de futbol. Seria bueno dar su opinion segun las jugadas that is puedan ir dando in el transcurso de partido. #BuenasNochesMundo

"I propose that for the VAR, in addition to the referee who analyzes the images, there is also a former football player.It would be good if he could give his opinion according to the actions that can intervene during a match"said Real Madrid's historic doorman on Twitter. There is no doubt that an outside and informed opinion could only do good to the referees.
