VAR was put in place in the Premier League for the first time this season, and it didn’t come without its own controversies.

VAR faced a lot of criticisms, and there were talks that the VAR won’t be used to complete the season.

However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has insisted VAR will remain when the league returns, although he admits there could be an issue with social distancing when it comes to analysing the VAR, with social distancing a major requirement for now.

Masters said: “VAR has its own social distancing issues but we think there is a way of completing the season with VAR so that’s absolutely our intention, to complete the season with VAR in place.

“The hub itself could be a problem and if you can’t do the hub, you have to do it remotely and that’s what we are looking at.”

The Premier League is due to resume on June 17 and will run until July, with 92 games yet to be played.
