Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has revealed he doesn’t like the introduction of VAR to football.

In an interview with ESPN, the reporter asked Hazard: “If there was one thing that you could change in football, rule change, or something that you want to see different, what would you change about the game? 

Hazard initially struggled to come up with an answer as he replied with: “About the game? Let me think a bit.” 

The Madrid star eventually decided on removing VAR as his answer. 

He said: “You know I don’t like that much this VAR. I don’t like it, I will remove it.” 

He then explained his reasoning after being asked why. 

Hazard said: “Because it is part of football that referees to do mistakes and you know, because people they are just complaining all the time so that is why they made this VAR.” 

The Belgian added: “You know after a goal, we are waiting and it is like we miss a bit of this happiness when you score a goal. You are always like ‘there is VAR’ so I would remove it.”
