Raphael Varane, defender of Manchester United, is disappointed with the FA and the new rules they are trying to implement from the beginning of this season. The Frenchman is especially furious about the extra time, which will now be even longer.
Taking into account all factors, Varane is furious considering that this could have huge consequences for the mental and physical health of football players. “We had a meeting last week with the FA,” -Raphel Varane wrote on Twitter.
“They recommended from the referees new decisions and rules.
From the managers and players, 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.
Despite our previous feedbacks, they have now recommended for next season: longer games, more intensity, and less emotions to be shown by players.
We just want to be in good condition on the pitch to give 100% to our club and fans.
Why are our opinions not being heard?”
According to the former Real Madrid player, with this kind of rule change, the footballers will not be able to provide the fans with what they want. Nevertheless, the FA has goals that they want to implement, and it is unlikely that the remarks of Varane and others will actually have the effect that they are hoping for.
“As a player I feel very privileged to do the job I love every day but I feel these changes are damaging our game.
We want to be at our maximum level, the best we can be and put on amazing performances for fans to celebrate every week." Many footballers support Varane and his remarks.
It is certain that more reactions will follow. “I believe it is important that we, players and managers, highlight these important issues as we want to protect the game we love and give the fans our best”.
