Video technology should be used for offside decisions - Arsene Wenger

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks the use of TV replays by referees should only be added for offside decisions for now.

Football's rule-making board the International Football Association Board (IFAB) has approved the start of in-game trials with video assistance for referees that are expected to start next year.

However, those trials would be restricted to referees ruling on whether a goal has been scored, a penalty should be awarded, a player should be sent off or in cases of mistaken identity.

With goal-line technology having already been introduced in football, Wenger said offside decisions should be the next frontier.

"I think the next step is to be the offside (which should) be treated like goal-line technology, exactly the same," Wenger said at his news conference on Monday.

"That's the easiest step to do. All the other ideas for me are at the moment too premature. But the offside can be treated very well and in a scientific way, and that should be the only next step."

Gianni Infantino was elected Sepp Blatter's replacement as the President of FIFA in February.

Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter resisted the use of technology for a long time, but his successor Gianni Infantino has promised to implement a "new era" of innovation in the sport.

"We have taken really a historic decision for football," Infantino said in Cardiff on Saturday at the International Football Association Board's annual meeting.

"FIFA and IFAB are now leading the debate and not stopping the debate. We have shown we are listening to the fans, the players."

The IFAB will have to approve all trials, with 13 leagues or associations already expressing an interest in hosting trials.
