Kevin De Bruyne and his dad knew his worth and needed nobody... Share this article Share Speaking to FIFA's Living Football Show, Wenger said: 'The automated offside I think will be ready for 2022. Automated means it goes directly from the signal to the linesman and the linesman has on his watch a red light that tells him offside or not offside.'At the moment we have situations where the players are on lines to see if they are offside or not. On average, the time we have to wait is around 70 seconds, sometimes one minute 20 seconds, sometimes a little bit longer when the situation is very difficult to appreciate.'It is so important because we see many celebrations are cancelled after that for marginal situations and that's why I believe it is a very important step.'The semi-automated goes first to the VAR, who signals it to the linesman.

He says both semi-automated and automated systems are being prepared for the tournament The automated version sends a signal straight to the linesman's watch to indicate if the player is offside or not. While the semi-automated function which will go through VAR firstThe semi-automated system was used on a trial basis at the 2019 Club World Cup and received positive feedback. However, the fully automated function is yet to be used in a competitive fixture.  The International Football Association Board (IFAB) will, however, have the final say over the introduction of the technology as they oversea the sport's rule book. Despite campaigning for the new technology to be used, Wenger remains adamant that the final decision will rest with the referee. He said: 'FIFA and IFAB have always maintained that the final decision will remain with the referee, with technology being introduced to provide the officials with the best support available.'  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next 'That's nonsense!
