Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has admitted he does not like VAR as he fears it will suck the excitement out of football, although he believes it will help him win more penalties this season.
Last season, Salah was often accused of diving to win penalties, with many fans of rival clubs suggesting that the introduction of VAR this year will work against the Egyptian.
He said: "I don't like it. That's my answer, always. I don't like it.
When asked what impact he felt VAR would have on the season, Salah simply responded:
"I’m not a striker, I play as a winger, so it’s my job not just to score but to also assist, play with the midfield. I play on the wing which no one recommended," Salah added.
"For a long time I didn’t play as a number nine. I’m comfortable with that. It’s not my first job. Like, the number nine, his job is only to score but as a winger it’s not just to score, it’s to give assists and play with the team. I’ll do a lot of things to defend."
