PANAMA CITY Jordan 4 Shoes For Sale , Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said Thursday that he is against the use of video replay during games because it takes away the essence of football.
Jerome Valcke praised the use of goal-line technology, which helps referees determine whether the ball actually crossed the goal line as it was brought into the World Cup in Brazil for the first time, but he expressed disagreement with the possible use of video replay to solve controversial plays during games.
"The World Cup is a laboratory where we can test new technology, new ideas ..." he said at the opening of the first of a series of four technical conferences for the Brazil World Cup in the capital of Panama.
"If I may say, I'm against the use of video replay. I think the goal-line technology is the maximum we should use in a game in order not to destroy the beauty Jordan 13 Shoes For Sale , the speed and the nature of the games." said Valcke as he noted that in March FIFA will discuss about the questions.
His view seems to contrast with the opinion of FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who recently expressed that the video replay system allowing coaches to challenge a referee's decision may be trialled next year at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
Blatter, 78, speaking via video link at Manchester's Soccerex, said he wants coaches to be allowed at least one challenge per half.
The first of a series of four World Cup technical conferences is on-going between September 10 and 11 as member associations from CONCACAF Jordan 1 Shoes For Sale , CONMEBOL participate in the seminar.
