“PFA” calls for a temporary substitute to head injuries during matches

The English Professional Footballers ‘ Association (PFA) has called for a temporary change for players who suffer head injuries during matches.

The statement came after Leeds United player Robin Koch suffered a head injury during his team’s match against Manchester United, where the association criticized the current protocol, stressing that it is not practical and does not support the safety of players, and also puts additional pressure on the medical staffs who carry out a rapid assessment of the injuries.

The “PFA” said that the temporary change would allow games to resume quickly and reduce the pressure on players who sometimes tolerate themselves despite injury, and medical teams that work at full speed, noting that the current rules of the Football Council (IFAB) are useless and put players at risk.
