New era of Footballing Rules?
Recently, during an interview, Pep Guardiola (Manchester City Manager) had a few rule adjustments in mind for the FA to consider adding in to the beautiful game.
During the interview, he suggested the idea of giving the managers the opportunity to use up to 6 substitutions during the course of the 90 minutes. He believes that, “They [the players] are focusing on more and more and more – it affects the quality,” which means that because football is becoming more intense, in footballing quality and on the athletes themselves, that they are becoming at risk of burning themselves out.
He also stated, “You play against Milan, Juventus, Madrid and you have to win. People demand you have to play good [with] no preparation. Then you come back and it’s 11 months again and it’s the European Cup. ”
“This kind of thing is impossible because we are going to finish [the season], then after one week the World Cup then after three weeks we go to the pre-season, we go to China, the States, Australia,”
So far, nothing has been said by FA regarding this matter, but we believe nothing shall come of it apart from a few confused faces towards Guardiola.
