Approve 5 Substitutes! Guardiola and Klopp Pile Pressure On The Premier League

Posted by

By reintroducing five substitutions this season, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have joined hands in placing pressure on the Premier League to strengthen player welfare-and lawmakers have given the green light to the initiative.

On Friday, the managers of Manchester City and Liverpool led the charge for the rule to return, amid concern over mounting muscular injuries and frustration that English football has not followed the lead of Europe.

During Project Restart, top-flight clubs were allowed to use five replacements, but some outside the elite protested that it gave larger squads an unfair advantage.
