Football: Blue Card?  Angry skeptical

Greuther Fürth’s coach Alexander Zorniger is skeptical about the possible introduction of a blue card in football. “The rule changes from the last ten years that I can quickly think about and that have also brought something to football were the back pass rule to the goalkeeper. Otherwise, I find it difficult to say: The rule change has completely helped football, and the same applies to the blue card,” said the coach of the Franconian second division football team before the home game against Hertha BSC on Sunday (1.30 p.m./Sky).

Zorniger added humorously: “Then in the meantime a referee has to carry around a little Gucci bag so that he can store all the cards.”

British newspaper The Telegraph has reported that the International Football Association Board (Ifab) has approved the trial introduction of the new blue card. The world football association FIFA described the media report about the decided introduction as “wrong and premature”. In the case of such attempts, “they should be limited to responsible testing at lower levels.”

A blue card is intended to result in a ten-minute time penalty being imposed on players if, for example, they have prevented a clear chance to score with a less serious foul or verbally attack officials. “All the changes that you make to the most popular game in the world, because it’s one of the simplest games in the world, just because someone wants to be on a list at some point: ‘Who actually did what in football?’ – that’s what happens to football not good,” said Zorniger.

The Fürth team want to put on a passionate performance again in the home game against Berlin on Sunday. “Our concept is that we want to set the place on fire again, in a figurative sense,” Zorniger announced a week after his team lost 3-2 in the top game of the 2nd Bundesliga against league leaders FC St. Pauli.
