Platini wary of technology

Last week FIFA discussed the introduction of goal line technology but Platini believes that introducing more help for referees is a better way to tackle the problem of refereeing errors.

“One referee is not enough, not in the modern era where you have 20 cameras. It is unfair: the cameras can see everything but the referee only has one pair of eyes. Every time he makes a mistake, those cameras are there to focus on it.

“It is why for the past 10 years I have asked to change the job of the referee, to help improve the situation and to give the referees better support.
