Trent Alexander-Arnold’s Sunday afternoon time-wasting warning has been criticized by Jurgen Klopp.
In the 67th minute of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Alexander-Arnold received a yellow card for taking too long to complete a throw-in. The right-back, according to Klopp, was not idly idling but rather searching for a player in space to throw to.
By enforcing timewasting more strictly, the Premier League hopes to see the ball remain in play for extended periods of time. This is in addition to the law being enforced under longer periods of added time thanks to changes made by the FIFA-backed International Football Association Board.
Due to the changes in the law, the nine Premier League games played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday lasted more than 100 minutes longer.
On Monday night at Old Trafford, Manchester United defeated Wolves 1-0.
Gary Neville supports swift change to the Premier League’s new rules because “it is not right.”.
According to Klopp, “I think some teams stretched it last season, definitely.”. Furthermore, we have never been one of these teams. I was aware that our throw-in time-wasting would result in a yellow card, possibly the first of the game.
Trent cannot simply take the ball and throw it; he must search for a player. This is a tactical move. Maybe we should make it a little clearer, but aside from that, I believe that too many teams overdid it and made it too obvious, which is why everyone believes that we should watch a little more football.
“That’s the way it is now, but I’m not sure exactly what the net ball was during play time today. Sincerity be damned, it wasn’t an issue for me today. Because of the VAR decisions, how long was the first half exactly? five in the second half, I believe.
That’s a lot, but at this moment we’re trying to arrange it that way. I don’t know if it will, but for the time being we must deal with it since it is what it is. “.
Klopp made an appeal, but the Premier League is expected to maintain its strict stance against timewasting. Keith Hackett, the former general manager of refereeing organization PGMOL, told The Telegraph that players and managers had been warned that this would take place.
Although it is a crackdown, Howard Webb would never describe it as such. We will endure more suffering until we see players and managers responding better, but Webb must maintain his composure. “.
The length of Premier League games has already drawn criticism from players. Before the start of the new season, Raphael Varane tweeted: “We have shared our concerns for many years now that there are too many games, the schedule is overcrowded, and it’s at a dangerous level for players physical and mental well-being.
The start of the new football season is quickly approaching, and Sky Sports is the only place to catch all the action with 500 live games, access to Cricket, Golf, Formula 1, Boxing, the NFL, and the NBA on eight dedicated channels.
They now have recommendations for the upcoming season despite our prior feedback, including longer games, increased intensity, and reduced player emotion.
We simply want to maintain our fitness so that we can give everything we have to our team and supporters.
Why aren’t we being listened to?
“Despite our earlier criticisms, they have now suggested that the players show less emotion and play longer, more intense games in the upcoming season. To give our club and supporters everything we have, we simply want to be in good shape on the field. Why aren’t our views taken into consideration?
