Perhaps it poses them some disadvantages - Spalletti aims dig at VAR critics

Inter coach Luciano Spalletti has aimed a dig at critics of the video assistant referee (VAR) system, suggesting it possibly "poses disadvantages" to its detractors.

VAR has come in for criticism in Serie A this season, with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri suggesting matches will last "three or four hours" if the system is not improved after the technology's role in two key decisions in a 2-2 draw against Atalanta before the international break.

Speaking to Premium Sport, he said: "There have been improvements and it's yielding results.

"This is the right way to be. I cannot understand those who want to go back to how it was before. Perhaps it poses them some disadvantages."
