FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio pleased with VAR impact in Serie A

Carlo Tavecchio has said VAR is helping to ensure sporting justice.

The president of the Italian Football Association has said he believes the use of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology in Serie A this season has been a success so far.

Italy's top division is one of several European leagues using the technology to review contentious situations.

And Carlo Tavecchio said he was pleased with what he had seen during the first six rounds of matches, telling RAI Radio 1: "The VAR is something that I wanted a long time ago.

"It is a great method of justice, above all, and I would like to say that at least 10 decisions have been corrected, and these have ensured sporting justice.

"Like anything, it takes time to get used to it, but as far as the time [taken for decisions] is concerned, the data shows that it is taking a bit longer than we had expected and we need to reduce the time it takes.

"But even the technology is led by humans, and humans are not perfect."

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said he believed the use of VAR would soon spread, adding: "Bit by bit, as it goes on, you get the best out of it. The VAR is being used correctly in Italy, and I'm very happy because Italy is pioneering an important change.

"I think there will be uniformity in coming years and this technology will arrive in all countries. It's a positive development."

Conte added that he believed Italian football was "recovering ground" after years of declining success and added: "All the best players want to play in England, which used to happen in Italy.

"I remember when Juventus, AC Milan and Inter were all in the semifinals of the Champions League and all the players wanted to come to Italy; it was the most beautiful [league] around and what everybody wanted.

"But I think the league is back on the right track."
