That’s my answer, always. I don’t like it. I love football how it is. It’s like that with the mistakes of the referee, with the aggression from the player sometimes.”Advertisement “It’s OK sometimes to protect the players from dangerous play. But OK, that’s it, in my opinion, that could be the only reason that happened, just to protect the players. “The winger believes its the errors that make the game more thrilling.Advertisement “But for me, I accepted the football with the mistakes of the referee, mistakes of the player, I don’t know, whatever. That’s how the football gets more excited.” The UEFA Champions League winner said.Salah also stated that VAR can cause players to be afraid of celebrating a goal, or can go in favour of winning penalties.“More penalties for me, you will see that” he later added.Watch the interview here, courtesy to CNN International’s official Twitter: Advertisementlast_img
