UEFA have announced they will continue with additional assistant referees in the Champions League and Europa League next season - but not goal-line technology.

The International FA Board (IFAB) gave their approval to the extra assistants, one next to each goal, to be used in competitions following an experimental period.

IFAB also gave the go-ahead to goal-line technology but, with UEFA president Michel Platini a firm opponent, the systems will not be used in European competition for the foreseeable future.
