UEFA chief Platini wants sin-bin over yellow cards

UEFA president Michel Platini has called for players who receive yellow cards to be sent to the sin-bin, as is the case in rugby, BBC Sport has reported.

The rule would see players who are cautioned to spend 10-15 minutes off the field of play, leaving the opposition with a one-man advantage over the course of that period.


And Platini believes that the rule would be beneficial to football should it be introduced. He told the Spanish daily AS: ‘I would make it like rugby, punishing the offender with 10 or 15 minutes out of the game. It is an idea. Now it needs to mature and see if it really is good for the game. It is a proposal to be explored."


The accumulation of yellow cards see players banned for future matches, but the Frenchman concluded that the sin-bin would be a fairer punishment because "that way, the benefit goes to the team he is playing against, in the same match, instead of a sanction by cards which is carried out against a third team, the next on the calendar".


He also went on to say that goalkeepers who concede penalties should not receive a straight red card, adding: "It seems excessive. The penalty is itself already is punishment enough. I think it's something that everyone in Fifa and Uefa agree, but one or two of the countries that make up the International Board are unwilling to change."
