Panel rejects triple punishment proposal

Football's rules-making panel has rejected UEFA's proposal to remove red cards from the so-called "triple punishment" for penalty-area fouls which deny a goal-scoring opportunity.

Michel Platini attends a UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Bilbao.
UEFA president Michel Platini is not happy with the current triple-punishment situation.

• Mangan: Punishment too severe

Currently a player can concede a penalty, receive a red card for preventing a goalscoring opportunity and then be suspended for a single incident.

UEFA president Michel Platini called it a "stupid rule" this week after Arsenal and Manchester City both lost players to red cards while conceding penalties during Champions League matches.

But the International FA Board (IFAB) was unmoved by the criticism, and Scotland FA chief executive Stewart Regan said the panel wanted to avoid a "flip-flop" of reverting to the old rule which allowed defenders to avoid a red card for deliberately preventing a clear scoring chance.

Wojciech Szczesny received his marching orders for fouling Arjen Robben in the Gunners' 2-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich, while Martin Demichelis was dismissed for conceding a penalty to Lionel Messi in Barcelona's 2-0 victory at the Etihad, with both Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini criticising the rule.

IFAB will return yet again to the IFAB agenda at its 2015 meeting, after several failed attempts to modify it since being introduced after the 1990 World Cup.

IFAB's new football and technical advisory panels will discuss the issue, and oversee trials of rugby-type "sin-bins" where players are sidelined for several minutes for some yellow-card offences.

A European proposal to experiment with sin-bins will continue in youth football, after Platini suggested finding different ways to punish offenders who were already shown a yellow card.

Trials in England suggested a 10-minute period on the sidelines was too long, and prompted teams to be excessively defensive after losing a player.

"It did have some unforeseen consequences on the flow of the game,'' said IFAB member Alex Horne, general secretary of England's FA.
