Premier League: Jorginho

Jorginho has joined the long list of Premier League players and managers that have called for the re-introduction of the five-substitution rule. During the height of the pandemic, the Premier League had increased the number of substitutes allowed from three to five. This season’s top-flight officials reverted back to three substitutes but there have been calls to bring back the rule in the midst of fixture congestion.

“I would love to push for five substitutions because five substitutions were made to protect the players when coronavirus popped up and made life difficult.” Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said. “I think the situation is very serious and very challenging so if we decided to keep on playing at least we should have five changes to control the load. How should we be in it [the title race]? We have seven Covid cases. We have five or six players out for six or more weeks. How should we compete in a title race?”

“It’s very hard because we don’t have time to rest. We need to play every three days and we have just three subs and that’s insane we don’t go for five,” Jorginho said about the Premier League not employing the five substitution rule. “In my opinion, it’s just too much. We should do something about it because if we keep going like this, we’ll just have more players injured and maybe the quality of the game will go down, so that’s not the best for entertainment.”
