Guest of the show 2 from Punta in Uruguay on Wednesday, Edinson Cavani (34) spoke about his recent contract extension with Manchester United. But El Matador also spoke on some hot topics in football news, including the Super League project, to which the Red Devils had also joined. “We must not take away from modest teams the possibility of playing a Champions League. It is up to the middle teams to dream of competing with the biggest, of having their place among the biggest. Nor to the supporters of these teams to experience that. When it happened, I thought to myself, “It’s not possible. If it happens, what’s in store for us next?” I do not share this, I do not agree “, entrusted the Uruguayan before evoking the VAR (video assistance to the arbitration). With, again, a clear opinion.
“We put the VAR on you, you don’t know why a referee whistles a penalty, why we signal you offside, or even how it works. All that is difficult. You score and you have to wait two minutes to celebrate. Worse, you can celebrate and we come to tell you that it is canceled because you have a nail or hair out of play or that, fourteen passes before you score, one of your partners made a small mistake that does not had not been seen. All this takes away the charm and the essence of football. It has become a little difficult to live with all that, without supporters moreover », he regretted, disappointed with the place given to the word of footballers at the time of decisions. “We haven’t even been asked our opinion, we hardly count, it’s ‘play and shut up, you’re making a lot of money’. For us, football becomes a job, even if there is passion too. You have to have a cool head to endure this routine for so long. I’m not complaining, I know this is the reality in other areas as well. Everyone has their own reality. But that’s not why I don’t have the right to speak or give my opinion ”. It is said.
