Moyes wants rule changed

The Citizen (KZN) - - Sports Express -

David Moyes, West Ham’s new man­ager, has called on the In­ter­na­tional Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Board (IFAB) to change the hand-ball law.

Moyes made the sug­ges­tion af­ter his side were de­nied a stop­page-time equaliser by the video as­sis­tant referee in their 1-0 de­feat against Sh­effield United at Bra­mall Lane on Fri­day.

Robert Sn­od­grass thought he had lev­elled the scores, but re­plays showed the ball had been headed against De­clan Rice’s arm from point-blank range by de­fender John Egan in the build-up. Moyes said IFAB should dis­cuss the law at their an­nual meet­ing on 29 Fe­bru­ary in Belfast.
