Full details are on how Premier League clubs reject five substitutes but make a major change

Premier League clubs will soon be allowed to name nine substitutes on the bench – but they are still only allowed three changes per game instead of five.

There has been a debate lately as to how many sub-managers per game should be allowed among this season’s tough games roster.

Most major European leagues allow five changes, with the Premier League the only major return to the traditional three of previous seasons.

The likes of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola of Manchester City have called for change to prevent potential injury cases.

Premier League teams will still only be able to make three substitutes for each game going forward.

But in the latest vote on the rules at the 20-club meeting the decision was 10 votes non-stop and 10 votes against five allowed substitutes – falling far below the 14-seat majority split. -6 required to change rule.

The separate vote to increase the number of substitutes that could be named on the bench was extended from seven to nine, however.

The decision is unlikely to go down well with Klopp and Guardiola, who were as far back as last month about the current rules.

“All the teams have to understand why it’s so helpful. It’s not an advantage, it’s a necessity. 100 percent,” Klopp said.

“In every other country it happens and here we make a little more fun of the tournament with just three subs. That’s awful, so we have to talk again.”

And Guardiola said: “There are five centers around the world, but here we believe we are more special people,

“We will not defend the players, which is why it is a catastrophe. In this calendar, in particular. I ask, if the people allow, we have to return to five players. If not, it is difficult to maintain. “

Despite the passion for the subject, Klopp made no substitutes in Liverpool ‘s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Wednesday, while Guardiola has only made three in total in his last two games at City.

The Premier League also announced that it would join the game’s law-making body, the Board of the International Football Association, to participate in a concussion agent trial.

The protocol that the Premier League has expressed an interest in allows each team to make up to two additional permanent substitutions in the event of a decision, with the opponents allowing the same number of changes to be made. do more.

He could be entered into the tournament as early as next month, the league said. The league’s medical working group will meet on Friday to further discuss the protocols.
