FIFA president Gianni Infantino have been asked by UEFA to change the handball rule to stop “growing frustration” following a spate of penalties awarded for the offence.
This was contained in a letter by the European football’s governing body on Thursday.
UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin, in a letter to Infantino, asked that football’s lawmakers adjust the handball rule, which has been in place since March last year so that referees can once again judge whether there is intent when a player handles the ball.
Ceferin’s letter read partly, “The attempt to strictly define the cases where handling the ball is an offence has resulted in many unfair decisions which have been met with growing frustration and discomfort by the football community.”
