In football we are still behind, we have so much to learn,” Henry told the Leaders Week sports business conference in London. “What I can see in American football, in rugby, in cricket or whatever it is, tennis, it’s instantaneous.

” Henry, now assistant coach of the Belgian national team, added: “With VAR, what annoys me is that it’s not fast enough. Then it’s still the decision of someone in a truck or wherever they are, because VAR isn’t making the decision, VAR is just there to remember the situation.

“Henry said the uncertainty surrounding VAR prevented immediate celebrations. “What we want to see is for the game to happen,” he said. “Another thing that is very difficult for me is that I am used to scoring goals as a player. Sometimes (now) you don’t even know whether to jump. “Do I jump? am i celebrating Am I not celebrating? It kills the beat of the joy of the game.”
