Manchester City and Arsenal drew 1-1 in the 2023-24 season Community Shield held at Wembley Stadium in London, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 7th. At the end of the penalty shootout, Arsenal won the Community Shield 4-1 against Man City, winning the Community Shield for the 17th time in their career.
After the defeat, manager Pep Guardiola complained about the extra time rule introduced for the first time this season. “It’s not annoying, you just have to get used to it,” Pep said. Not because we were winning 1-0, but because I had a feeling there wouldn’t be much to extend to the eighth minute. This rule was not discussed with the coach and players.”
From this season, the Premier League has been reorganized. As was the case at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it will give extra time longer. Through this, it was announced that it would crack down on time delay due to injury treatment and intentional time delay.토토사이트
As the playing time increases, players have no choice but to worry about physical fitness problems. Pep said: ‘It is certain that football matches will now be 100 minutes long. Imagine that extra time was eight minutes, and each time a goal was scored, the time was extended. We will be playing until 9 am tomorrow.’
Top teams are complaining about this rule. Premier League teams basically compete in three competitions, including the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup, but the top teams must also go to Europe.
In this way, if the game of the top team is increased and the extra time is extended, the fatigue of the players will accumulate and the number of injured players will increase.
Now that the first game has started and there are many more games scheduled, complaints from the manager and players will come out more and more. Attention is focused on whether this rule will continue to be implemented in the future.
