Players creating a TV-style gesture using their hands should be provided with a yellow card based to Uefa.

The guidance was awarded to referees in front of VAR a few weeks, currently being introduced in to the Champions League.

The gesture is a bookable offence at which VAR is currently in surgery, but the policy was not enforced at the World Cup last summer or alternative contests.

“If players create the VAR signal of course if they encircle the referee, there must be disciplinary actions,” Uefa stated.

At a briefing in front of Uefa’s congress at Rome, Uefa’s chief refereeing officer Roberto Rosetti used a clip of Harry Maguire during England’s World Cup match against Colombia to show if players should be booked.

The Leicester City guardian made the hint believing Jordan Henderson had been headbutted.

“We need action in these scenarios, we don’t need players working with referee on reviews.”
