Premier League: Klopp, against the blue card: “I don’t remember the last time the IFAB had a good idea”

Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool coach, was against blue cardswith which players who commit tactical fouls or protest the referee’s decisions will be punished with a ten-minute expulsion, and said that he does not remember “the last time the IFAB “He had a fantastic idea.”

This new protocol will restrict blue cards to fouls that cut off “promising attacks” or to protests by footballers.. Additionally, a player will be expelled from the match if he receives two blue cards, or one blue and one yellow (and vice versa).

Blue card? It doesn’t sound like a fantastic idea to me at first.

“It doesn’t sound like a fantastic idea to me right away,” Klopp said at a press conference this Friday. “But the truth is I can’t remember the last time these people (the IFAB) had a fantastic idea, if they ever had one.”

The German’s opinion is in line with that of other coaches, who showed their rejection this Friday, as is the case of Mauricio Pochettino, who assured that it will cause more debate and complicate matters for referees, players and fans.

This measure will mark the first time that a new disciplinary card is introduced since the arrival of the yellow and red cards in the 1970 World Cup.

Klopp also talks about Thiago

The German coach also analyzed Thiago’s relapse, injured after returning last weekend after nine months out.It is a muscle problem, we still do not know the extent. We have to wait a little. “It really wasn’t good news for him, nor for us, nor for everyone,” said the German.

“Yeah [espero que vuelva a jugar esta temporada], but we didn’t really think about that, at the moment we just treated the injury and did a full evaluation and knew exactly where it came from. It’s not because of the intensity. It’s just normal procedure and it wouldn’t be much of a story if he hadn’t been gone so long. “It’s not a very big injury,” Klopp said.
