The World Cup in Russia will be the first big tournament to use instant replay. How do you feel about this technology?
I have always said that I view instant replay skeptically, even if it results in more fairness. Even so, it’s important to retain the emotional aspect. Part of the experience is talking about the match during the week, and, if in doubt, about the referee, too. It keeps the enthusiasm going. In the Bundesliga, instant replay was already used this season. To be completely honest, I wasn’t 100-percent convinced. I would like it if the viewers were more involved in the decision.
