In two weeks, a meeting of the International Football Association Board (IFAB) will take place in London, where they will discuss the introduction of new rules, writes The Times.
The priority task of the meeting will be to find a solution to the problem that many referees have begun to leave football due to attacks against them. In particular, from the players.
The publication notes that this season alone in the Premier League, referees were forced to show 88 yellow cards to players for arguing.
There are currently two versions of the new rule. The first is borrowed from the youth leagues of England; the referee has the right to send off a player for 10 minutes if he begins to argue with the referee.
The second rule applies to rugby – only the team captain has the right to communicate with the referee.. It is likely that a variation of one of these rules may appear in professional football.
Earlier, we recall, Carlo Ancelotti left the RFEF meeting with the coaches early.
