Former Milan CEO Adriano Galliani believes “the history of Italian football could have changed” if VAR had been in place in the 2011-12 season.

In February 2012 the Rossoneri were leading 1-0 against Antonio Conte’s side at San Siro, when Gigi Buffon made a stunning save from a Philippe Mezes header.

Sulley Muntari pounced on the rebound, and while the Bianconeri goalkeeper pushed it back out, it had clearly crossed the line.

Sulley Muntari pounced on the rebound, and while the Bianconeri goalkeeper pushed it back out, it had clearly crossed the line.

Juve went on to win the Scudetto that season and every year since, but the former Milan CEO believes things could have been different if that goal had been allowed.

“Certainly VAR is eliminating a long of mistakes,” Galliani told SportMediaset.

“Who knows, with that Muntari goal maybe the history of Italian football could have changed. It’s useless to talk about the past though, we look forward.”
