On March 30, 65, The Times, the British media, reported that the English Premier League is preparing to change the rules for all teams to be able to replace five substitutes again from the 2022-23 season onwards.
The Premier League has already approved five substitutions as the league resumes following the coronavirus pandemic. First, in June 2020, before being changed back to replace three people again last season.
The Premier League club’s shareholders will be held in London. On Thursday, March 31, it is expected that the substitution of five will be one of the main topics of the meeting; however, an official vote is unlikely. But it seems that clubs began to signal their approval on this matter after the last ten teams disagreed because it is seen that the big clubs will have an advantage over the smaller teams.
Finally, suppose there is an official approval to replace five substitutes. In that case, It should make several players and managers, including Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, smile after trying to support the matter so far. Prevent injuries to players that will occur.
