New plan increases player scrutiny

English football players could be about to come under increasing scrutiny with The Telegraph reporting a new retrospective action scheme is about to be launched.

A meeting of a number of stakeholders in the game, including the Football Association, Premier League, Football League, Professional Footballers' Association, League Managers Association and Professional Game Match Officials Ltd, led to the agreement to expand retrospective action to include certain incidents missed by match officials.

And rather than relying on the referee using video footage to decide on whether any further action needs to be taken, the stakeholders have decided a panel of former officials should be created to make those calls.

However, the new plan still needs approval from the Football Regulatory Authority before it can be introduced.

The new measures follow a number of incidents in this season's Premier League which attracted their fair share of criticism.

The most notable was Wigan winger Callum McManaman's ugly challenge on Newcastle defender Massadio Haïdara, while the coming together of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Chelsea defender David Luiz in the FA Cup semi-final also caught the attention.
