Arsene Wenger wants to replace throw-ins with kick-ins. Corner kicks swinging out before coming back on to the field are on the table.
Arsene Wenger is hoping to lead a revolution in football by radically altering the throw-in rule to allow players to KICK the ball back into play.
The former Arsenal manager is now FIFA’s Chief Head of Global Football Development, driving rule changes in the game.
‘I would like to change the throw-in rule: five minutes before the end, a throw-in for you should be an advantage, but in these situations you are facing 10 outfield players in play, whilst you only have nine,’ Wenger told L’Equipe.
‘Stats show that in eight out of 10 of those throw-in situations, you lose the ball.
‘In your half of the pitch, you should have the possibility to take a kick instead.’
