France football legend and former UEFA president, Michel Platini, has lambasted the use of VAR in football, brandishing the technology as ‘rubbish’.
Platini has served his four-year ban from football, handed out after he received a ‘disloyal’ payment from Sepp Blatter.

Now, in promoting his new book The King is Naked on Italian TV show Che tempo che fa, Platini admitted his long-term dislike of VAR has not changed.
“You need half an hour to explain why it won’t solve anything,” said Platini.
“I’m against VAR, I think it’s rubbish and we’ll unfortunately never come back from it.”
The three-time Ballon d’Or winner in the mid-1980s, also confirmed that he is interested in returning to a role in football.
“At 64, I’ve got time for one last adventure, but I can’t make a mistake,” he admitted.
“I really have to think about it. After being acquitted by a Swiss court, I now have the opportunity to explain how things went down.”
