The President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino does not exclude that the rule that allows the team to get the match 5 substitutions, delayed the regulations in the long term.
It was introduced because of fears that the players after a long idle time and busy schedule will get more injuries. While the rule is valid until the end of the year.
“In August, we should complete the competition, then start a new season, including return matches teams. Then the new season, the Euro and the national Championships.”
“A very tight schedule, so we are discussing the opportunity for long term to preserve the right of each team to make 5 substitutions in a match,” said Infantino.
