Arsène Wenger has welcomed the prospect of goal-line technology being introduced as early as next year.

FA General Secretary Alex Horne confirmed the possibility of implementing the system in the Premier League for next season when he spoke on Thursday.

Wenger reiterated his desire for officials to act on the technology - and -as quickly as possible.

“The sooner, the better for me,” he told Arsenal Player. “The sooner they go further, the better. I have always been a big fan of it and given it every support.

“There are no [doubts for me]. The concern of course is that the technology can make mistakes but still statistically we will improve a lot.

“Overall we all have memories of when this technology would stop an injustice, so let's go for it - as quickly as possible.”
