Uefa president Michel Platini believes goal-line technology would lead to "Playstation football."

Fifa has reopened discussions on the subject but Platini said an assistant behind each goal and greater respect for referees were the solutions.

"The referee has to be helped by clubs, fans, players, media and authorities," he told the Scottish Football Association's website.

"It is why we have added two assistants for Champions League games."

Last week the International Football Association Board, Fifa's rulemaking division, asked technology companies to present ideas by the end of November.
