Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has backed the new rule which allow teams to make five substitutions in a game, reports Completesports.com.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) recently announced the change which will take effect once the different leagues restart following the coronavirus induced suspension.

The rule will also apply for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, while domestic competitions, including leagues which are due to end before December 31, 2020, will confirm if they will adopt the amendments.

“It gives us new possibilities to intervene during a match. We were already 18 in the national teams, there were more players on the sidelines than those who could come in, so there everyone is involved,”Rohr told Gironsdis4ever.

“This is important for the spirit of a group, rather than just three players who can play.

The coach can also intervene much more tactically, but also to avoid injuries. We have a lot more possibilities, it’s a very good measure. Maybe we will even keep it afterwards if that is satisfactory, we never know… The Bundesliga will serve as a test ball to see how it works ”.
