Former Arsenal and French Striker, Thierry Henry Has Proposed Major Changes To Football
Thierry Daniel Henry born 17, August 1977 is a French professional football coach, pundit, and former player. He is considered one of the best strikers of all time, and has been named Arsenal F.C’s greatest ever player.
Henry was runner-up for both the Ballon d’Or in 2003 and the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2003 and 2004. He was named the FWA Footballer of the Year a record three times, the PFA Players’ Player of the Year a joint-record two times, and was named in the PFA Team of the Year six consecutive times. He was also included in the FIFA FIFPro World XI once and the UEFA Team of the Year five times.
See the changes Henry proposed:
1️⃣ 𝐄𝐚𝐫𝐧 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐚 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐬𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥𝐬.
“Henry wants teams to be rewarded with an extra point if they score three plus goals in a game – regardless of the result.”
2️⃣ 𝐑𝐞𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐦𝐢𝐜𝐬.
“Referees have to come out after the game and talk to the press, please, and wear a mic also”“I want to hear what they say referees are not that polite sometimes.”
3️⃣ 𝐄𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐖𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠.
“When a team refuses to play – time-wasting, kicking the ball out – the referee can give a free-kick just like in rugby 25 yards away from goal, you can put the ball wherever you want.”
4️⃣ 𝐓𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐮𝐛𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬.
“Henry feels that in order to stop teams from going down to 10 players when someone is injured and requires treatment, Henry would like to see a temporary substitute introduced so that they can remain even.”
