The game has never been as fast as today. The few minutes less doesn’t take into consideration the greater intensity and stress todays stars are underIt hasn't increased on the past, though. I think people are forgetting that the time used by VAR has never been accounted for in matches; play time in each match is lower than ever.
In this case, it is probably just coincidence that some higher profile players have had it; the numbers are likely similar.
