‘Leave the game alone’ – Dyche puzzled by sin bin plans

-

Sean Dyche has implored football authorities to “leave the game alone” after plans to introduce sin bins were announced on Tuesday.

The trials of 10-minute sin bins were recommended by the International Football Association Board (IFAB), with players penalised with time off the pitch for cynical fouls and dissent.

The plans also include the introduction of a rule in which only the captains are allowed to approach referees during matches, all part of an attempt to cut down on bad behaviour by players.

But Everton manager Dyche feels the potential rule changes are unnecessary, telling reporters: “I don’t know why they don’t leave the game alone at times.


“I don’t think it’s needed, I don’t think it’s wanted, personally. Maybe fans will have a different view.

“How are you going to manage it? If someone goes off, how are you going to manage the fans’ response to that player? How are you going to manage the health and safety?

“I think it’s an odd thing to consider, but if it’s brought in, then that’s the way it goes.”
