EPL: Premier League managers to meet referees’ chief over VAR.

Premier League managers will meet with referees’ boss, Mike Riley, on Thursday, to discuss the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

Riley is the general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

PGMOL, the body responsible for the country’s leading referees, will meet with the top-flight’s northern-based managers, after sharing views with southern bosses last week.

Following the latest VAR controversies, managers will discuss whether match officials should be allowed to consult pitch-side monitors.

Referees in all other competitions that currently use the VAR system, are allowed to consult pitch-side monitors, but not in Premier League matches.

If the majority of top-flight managers and clubs agree on the issue, the PGMOL will consider introducing them. But no formal vote will be made at this stage.
