​La Liga to embrace VAR next season

La Liga plans to introduce video assistant referees (VAR) next season, the league's president Javier Tebas said on Tuesday.

Spain's top flight is the only one of Europe's top five leagues which has so far shunned the use of goal-line technology, much to the frustration of the teams.

"Next season there will be VAR in La Liga, without a doubt," Tebas said.

"We are making lots of progress in meetings about it right now and it will be ready very soon."
