Wayne Rooney and Roy Keane completely agree on removing VAR as Premier League clubs set to vote

Wayne Rooney and Roy Keane completely agree on removing VAR as Premier League clubs set to vote

The Sky Sports panel have had their say on VAR.

Wayne Rooney and Roy Keane are all unanimous on whether VAR should be scrapped in the Premier League following news clubs will vote on its use at the end of the season.

The decision to vote on the matter comes following a statement from Wolves who displayed their displeasure with the current use of VAR.

Wolves confirmed the move came after "careful consideration and with the utmost respect for the Premier League, (referees body) PGMOL and our fellow competitors."

They added: “There is no blame to be placed – we are all just looking for the best possible outcome for football – and all stakeholders have been working hard to try and make the introduction of additional technology a success.

“Our position is that the price we are paying for a small increase in accuracy is at odds with the spirit of our game, and as a result we should remove it from the 2024/25 season onwards.”

Following the breaking news, the topic was discussed on Sky Sports ahead of Manchester United vs Newcastle United with Roy Keane and Wayne Rooney both firmly on the same page.

Rooney stated: "Please. Please. I've been vocal on VAR - I don't like it. If it's there and they get all of the decisions right then fair enough but it's taking all the enjoyment out of the game."

His former teammate Keane also stressed the league would be better without the use of added technology.

"Without VAR, you'd accept decisions, some go for you and so go against. I know it's different based on goal scoring, offsides and red cards. But I've not been a fan, I agree it does slow the game down. It's frustrating for everyone, for the supporters, the players and for us," Keane explained.

United's top all-time scorer added: You're a goal scorer, you score a goal and you have to wait to celebrate, the fans have to wait to celebrate and then they're getting decisions wrong. I think you're better off letting referees ref it and understand they're going to make mistakes but I'd much rather see it without it."
