Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou seems to be against the decision to implement blue cards in the game
According to Football. London, Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou says that introducing blue cards in the game would lead to more controversies especially knowing the fact how VAR decisions have been ever since its introduction.
On Thursday, plans were announced for a potential trial that could see the introduction of a new disciplinary system in football. Under this system, players who commit acts of dissent and professional fouls would receive a blue card and be temporarily sent to the sin bin for 10 minutes.
“I don’t know why a different colour card is goint to make a difference. I don’t know about this taking things from other sports. Other sports are trying to make their games faster, we’re bringing in more clutter.”
It has been clarified by FIFA that the trial will not take place in elite football. The plans for the sin-bin trial will not be published by the International Football Association Board until next month.
Ange Postecoglou seems to be against the decision to implement new rules in the game.
Postecoglou provided a detailed analysis of the laws of the game in anticipation of Saturday’s match against Brighton. In the recent 2-2 draw against Everton, the Spurs manager stood up for his custodian Guglielmo Vicario, despite conceding from yet another corner.
Vicario struggled to handle Dwight McNeil’s cross into the six-yard box, with Jack Harrison putting pressure on him. This was a similar situation to the 1-0 defeat against Manchester City last month. These are a few incidents that make our manager think a million times that this card would be completely unnecessary. It’s true that if they get implemented in a league as competitive as the PL, then it is bound to hamper the outcome of the game and this might have caught the eyes of our manager.
It is commonly understood that players who are sent to the sin bin during the last ten minutes of the 2nd half will not be able to rejoin the game until that period is over. Even with a significant amount of added time. This seems to create another issue.
Guglielmo Vicario’s incident was another reason why Ange Postecoglou didn’t like the new system.
On Saturday, Tottenham will be hosting Brighton, aiming to avenge their 4-2 loss at the Amex Stadium back in December. Postecoglou appreciates Roberto De Zerbi’s approach to the game and acknowledges the similarities in their ideas, despite their different paths.
