MHK President Serdar Tatlı replied to Fenerbahçe President Ali Koç, who put forward the idea of determining the referee appointments in league matches by lot.
Stating that there is no example of such a situation in the world, Tatlı said that this application can be implemented by obtaining special permission from UEFA.
Speaking to TRT Spor, the highlights of Tatlı’s statements are as follows:
“We see that there is no such application in the developed leagues of Europe. There is no such appointment method in any country in the world. We know that Uilenberg and Roberto and UEFA did not make many suggestions in our conversations. It is a subject that is at the initiative of the country federations, provided that they take the opinion of UEFA. If federations can do that, it can be done. “
“OUR GOAL IS TO INCREASE YOUR FOOTBALL RIDE”
“Together with Uilenberg, we have been examining the training packages sent by UEFA in the trainings since the beginning of the season. We convey our thoughts to the referee friends in the reviews. We also stick to what IFAB says. We discuss the issue of what we should do to increase the course of football in our country. We have examined the issue of England’s example of Germany. We said play the situations where you feel light touch in the whole area of the game. We said that they should keep light touches in all areas of the game. Even UEFA recently added the images that they did not want to be a simple penalty. We tried to take precautions. We asked the referees for this in pre-season training.
“EVIDENCE IS NECESSARY FOR THE VAR”
“We do the training we give to our referees with the instructions of FIFA and UEFA. If you have clear evidence, you should apply to VAR. If there is no clear evidence, what will be evaluated anyway. VAR room should be able to clearly demonstrate. We send our deficiencies to our referees by e-mail on Wednesdays. We also inform our VAR referees about their deficiencies on Thursdays. “
“YES HAVE TO HELP”
“VAR cannot influence the referee on the field. VAR has the VAR referee to assist the referee like the assistant referee. The VAR protocol includes the following: If there is clear evidence that can change the course of the match, it is tried to be activated. He has no authority to direct the referee’s decision, granting him an option and advising him to review. “
“THE DECISION IS ALWAYS THE REFEREE”
“The referee initiates the review. If the referee is in doubt, he has the opportunity to review it again. The referee has the right to change his decision after reviewing. The referee initiates the decision. Even when the VAR recommends a review to the referee, the decision is up to the umpire.”
“ONLY 5 OUT OF 21 CLUBS REQUESTED EDUCATION FROM US”
“For VAR, 5 out of 21 teams requested us about the rules. About the general rules and VAR, we only sent trainers to our 5 clubs. What is important here is that the footballers and the technical delegation receive training. We talk to our educator friends afterwards, and that our trained footballers remain insensitive. Nobody wants to learn the rules. The manager, the fans, the clubs, nobody wants to learn the rules. The football players are looking to end their training as soon as possible. We are open, we are always open to anyone who wants the rules of the game as long as we get a request.
“IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO SHARE EXIST RECORDS”
“I listen to VAR recordings from time to time. IFAB has advice on not disclosing VAR records. There have been times when I listened to VAR recordings. It is technically not possible to leak VAR records.”
