Crystal Palace chairman Parish: Premier League must reject VAR

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has declared VAR must be rejected by the Premier League.

Parish called the introduction of VAR a 'dangerous road to go down' while speaking at the Sport Industry Breakfast Club on Wednesday.

He said: "I am very worried about VAR. I hate all those games that stop and start, waiting for a decision, and they don't necessarily get the decision right.

"We're going down an incredibly dangerous road with that. My real problem is that we've got it for five decisions at the moment, but I can't see any end to it. You know the answer for everything is going to be more VAR.

"I don't see a point of having it for five things when you're still going to get massive injustices. I remember when rugby introduced Television Match Officials. I just lost interest in it."
