Blanc favours goal-line tech
Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc on Friday said he was "in favour" of goal-line technology after the announcement that it would be introduced in Ligue 1 next season.
"I already said I was in favour of video technology, especially on the goal line. I think it's a good decision," said Blanc at a press conference ahead of PSG's trip to Nice on Saturday.
"It will allow us to tell, even if there are not many situations like it, whether the ball has crossed the line or not. That is the most important thing."
The technology will only be introduced in Ligue 1 and will not involve the lower leagues or the domestic cups.
It was brought in to English football at the start of last season and was also used at last year's World Cup in Brazil.
