Marco van Basten is working at wereldvoetbalbond FIFA to a plan to the cries of players on the field to reduce. The ex-striker, taking a rule from rugby as an example.

Van Basten, who earlier this year in his role as assistant coach with the Dutch national team upgraded to a function in FIFA in which he deals with technological developments, will find that there is too much talking on the field.

“There are many players who complain during a match. I am convinced that we can make sure that this behavior improves,” says the 52-year-old Van Basten Saturday against the BBC.

The 58-fold Orange-international believes that the FIFA should ensure that referees are protected. He sees the tests with the video-arbitrator as a step in the right direction.

“Here we help the referees. We try to be a good situation to create. Dynamic, exciting, but also fair,” said Van Basten.


The Utrechter think that can be learned from the rugby where only the captain during a match, the referee is allowed to talk.

“There is a lot of emotion during a match and that is good, but we should within the limits. We can of every sport to learn and vice versa. The fact is that we need to tackle.”

Earlier this month at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS for club teams experimented with the videoscheidsrechter. Danny Makkelie made a scoop for the first time during an international tournament to act as a video-arbitrator
