UEFA plan to solve the VAR offside controversy by introducing thicker lines for offside decisions in a bid to encourage more goals from next season.

This is according to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

“One centimetre offside is not offside,” said Ceferin, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports News.

“Because that’s not the meaning of the rule. And it has to be clear and obvious mistake for VAR to intervene.

“So, thicker lines are essential because the line is drawn subjectively. So, it’s not exact and if one centimetre… you ruin the season of a club with one wrong decision. And, for me, the handball is also problematic, but I don’t know what exactly to do about it. We are discussing a lot with our referee officers.”
