FIFA have refused Arsenal permission to use goal line technology in our annual Ashburton tournament.
Arsene Wenger has been a long term supporter of bringing technology into football in a bid to ensure the outcome of matches are the correct ones. The Frenchmen sought the permission to test out some technology this weekend, however that permission was refused.
'You need permission to use goal-line technology and we didn't get it, I think they do not want to start having a different set of rules here and there, and I can understand that."
"But the good thing is they are open to it and it looks like we will have it in the next World Cup. "
'You want it so you have a better chance to make the right decisions. You know it could help referees. The more help they get, the more decisions they get right. "
'If it means they get 95 decisions out of 100 right instead of 85, you have to use the technology. I would like to use it for more than just the goal-line, but that would be a first step.'
Is this really, as Wenger suggests, simply a case of FIFA not wanting different sets of rules "here and there"? Because nobody seemed to have any objections to the way the points are issued in the tournament which clearly differs from football all over the world …. Or is it FIFA just being stubborn as usual.
As this is a private tournament, hosted our on own our terms on our own ground I fail to see why we need the permission of a bunch of corrupt dictators anyway.
