Since football was restarted in the midst of the pandemic in the Premier League (June 2020), the sports authorities allowed five substitutions for each team in the matches as happened in the tournaments of the other countries. However, this season the three changes were returned. However, the English league has suffered a reappearance of cases of coronavirus in the parties and one of the most affected is the Manchester United.
The ‘Red Devils’ have been forced to suspend the training of the players because the health personnel detected infected in the establishment. In addition, their meetings against Brentford and Brighton were postponed. In that context, technical director Ralf Rangnick called for the old rules to return.
“If I remember correctly, I think each team could make five changes when the pandemic started a year and a half or two ago. I think the league made the right decision [en ese entonces], helping gamers, especially if they had just recovered from COVID-19 ″, noted for the club’s website.
The Manchester United coach considered that if the five modifications per team return in each match, the players would benefit the most since they would rest for the string of matches.
“Right now, I think we are going through a situation similar to what we had back then. Therefore, I do not see why the rules could not be as they were before. As far as I know, England is the only European country where only three changes can be made “, mentioned
“This would increase and improve the emotional situation of each team, because it could make a big difference in playing time as well. I am in favor of being able to make five changes per game. As I said before, this is something that is done in other European countries “he added.
