sport news Blue card punishments 'WILL apply to goalkeepers' if football's new laws are ... trends now
Further details surrounding the potential introduction of blue cards into football have been revealed.
Football fans and pundits were left baffled by the news on Thursday that the new card would be trialled to sin-bin players guilty of minor offences for ten minutes - with raged supporters claiming the new rule change would ruin the game.
An introduction of the card would be the first new card in football in more than half a century, with yellow and red cards being introduced in 1970 and running to the present day.
The proposals have received largely negative responses from Premier League managers, with Ange Postecoglou agreeing that the proposals would ruin the game and Mikel Arteta suggesting they could be trialled if they improve football.
New details have raised further questions, however, with it initially unclear where goalkeepers and managers stood with the sin-bin idea. According to The Telegraph, however, those queries have now been answered.
