“The Premier League has been created with people who had a progressive mind, overall, I believe that with that decision we are behind the rest of the world.”

“The young generation is used to (VAR) and worldwide they might move away from us because they see that in other countries they do it.”

“Unfortunately the Premier League has again decided not to go for VAR and personally I believe that is a very, very bad decision, every big game this season has been decided by mistakes that could have been avoided with VAR, especially in the Champions League with Manchester City and Liverpool.”

Wenger may get his wish soon though, as it will be reviewed again next season.
