German FA considers red card 'parole'

The German Football Association (DFB) is to introduce a system of "parole" for red cards in an attempt to make punishments "more preventative than repressive".

Jurgen Klopp has been frustrated by rumours of Lewandowski's exit
Klopp sees rights and wrongs in the proposal.

Hans Lorenz, the president of the DFB sports tribunal, revealed the plans in an interview. They mean that, from October, longer bans could partially be on a parole system.

It would mean FA officials could hand players a seven-match ban with three of them being on parole, he explained.

Lorenz told Welt Am Sonntag: “With the beginning of the new term, we will shape our sanctions to be more preventative than repressive.

“It would come into effect with shorter bans.”

But the proposal received mixed feedback from Bundesliga clubs and players.

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp said: "What do you have to do to get a four-match ban? That would be unsportsmanlike or violent conduct. I wouldn't know why that player than should be allowed parole."

But Klopp said it would be "cool" if players sent off and banned despite it being unclear whether the decision was right were allowed to play on parole after a review.

But Hamburg’s Germany international Marcell Jansen said: "That would be nonsense. The referee has to decide on the pitch, not some judges in the courtroom."

Jansen said he believed a player allowed to play on parole would "not play freely" because they would have that status in mind.

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer. however, backed the move, saying: "I know Mr Lorenz from my time at the German FA, and I think he is a very honourable and capable man.

"My first thought about this is that it is a step back from the straight line towards more flexibility which gives those responsible more scope. I have to say that is a good idea."

Thirty-one players were sent off in straight red card incidents last season.

One ban – that of Dortmund’s Marcel Schmelzer - was overturned after TV pictures showed the referee had got it wrong.

FC Augsburg’s Giovanni Sio received the season’s only four-match ban after a foul in their game against Greuther Furth.
