Burnley

Dyche hopes VAR will help refs

5th February 2019, 10:32 by Nick Harris

Sean Dyche does not believe officials should be made to explain their decisions after matches finished.

Burnley were on the end of a refereeing mistake at the weekend when what Dyche saw as a cast-iron penalty claim was turned down by referee Anthony Taylor after Ashley Barnes was brought down.

Rather than award a penalty, Taylor booked Barnes, on the word of his linesman, for diving leaving the player incensed but Dyche does not feel putting referees in front of the cameras will help.

“I don’t think so, I don’t think we want to go that far,” said Dyche when asked if he felt the referee should explain his decisions after a game.

“I hope that VAR will help, and I say help, because they do a really good job I think but I think it will help.

“It would help in those instances (the Barnes appeal), I don’t think that needed help, but it will.

"It will help with simulation hopefully, I believe. And if people do fall naturally it will show that they have been fouled and they are just playing the game and they have fallen naturally and they still deserve a penalty.

“I think it is complex and not as black and white as I am saying but I do believe it could be cleaner than what it is and more straightforward than what it is.”
