President of Uefa Michel Platini, assured everyone that Goal Line Technology will not be implemented or at least not anytime soon because he believes it is not a necessary thing to implement in football.
In the last World Cup alot of criticism was received after a large amount of injustice decisions were laid upon some countries and some players. Lets try and remember Frank Lampard’s screamer of a goal which was more than evident the ball had crossed the goal line but the referee did not call it as goal.
Also Italy were given a number of offside decisions in their last encounter in the World Cup of 2010. But the Frenchman Platini this technology is not needed.
“The day we have goal-line technology, five minutes after you will ask for offside technology.
“We will have that for ten years and then you will ask for penalty area technology.
“I don’t want this in the game. Football is human, football is organized by people and we have the most popular game in the world because it is human.
“If we need technology, we need it more for offside than for goal-line. Ten times in a game there may be a dispute about offside, one time every 40 years there is a need for goal-line technology.
