Premier League: New rules of conduct
The Premier League announces the new rules of behavior that footballers must have and the fans react.
The English Premier League, along with the English Football Association (FA), announced yesterday the new rules of conduct that will govern English football, due to the constant indecent behavior of footballers and coaches towards referees and beyond.
Trying to control the behavior of football players (footballers and coaches) that has become very aggressive in recent years, the Premier League has issued rules that must be followed by all teams.
From now on, a yellow card will be indicated to players who: They come in contact (face-to-face) with the referee or when a player seems to disrespect the referee. Another yellow card will be given when the player responds aggressively to the referees, runs to the referee to challenge his decision but even when he comes in simple contact with the referee and surrounds him with his teammates for one of his decisions.
A red card will be indicated when: The players challenge the referee's decision by telling him vulgar expressions, cursing him or committing a misdemeanor against him. But the best thing is that in case the footballer whispers something to the referee (obviously defamatory) then he can even show a red card at his discretion.
Conte: "I'm leaving it to the administration"
The Italian coach of Chelsea did not want to reveal his transfer moves for the future of his team, leaving open the transfer of Alvaro Morata.
Antonio Conte has refused to comment on Chelsea's possible interest in acquiring Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid worth 75 million euros.
Morata is said to be at the top of Chelsea's list in order to strengthen its offensive line in combination with the acquisition of Mitsi Batsuagi.
According to information, Real has rejected Chelsea's offer and Zidane is already counting on him for the next season, including him on the roster of Real Madrid's preparations.
Speaking about the incident, Conte told reporters: "As far as Morata is concerned, I leave it to the administration, we know our goals and the most important thing is that there is excellent cooperation between me and the transfer staff."
New offer for Manola Chelsea
Chelsea is ready to submit a new, rather improved proposal for the acquisition of Costas Manolas, and according to the Italian press, Roma cannot deny it!
Chelsea is said to be even more aggressive in acquiring Costas Manolas! According to "tuttomercatoweb.com", the "blues" are expected to submit a new improved proposal (without mentioning the amount) to the "jialorosi", who will have a hard time denying it!
The previous offer of the Londoners was close to 32 million euros, with the Romans rejecting it, claiming an amount of at least 45 million euros, to give the Greek stopper.
However, there is another big issue for Roma and that is why it is "blocking" - for the time being - the road to Costas Manolas, for another team. Under the agreement he made with Olympiacos two years ago, if the Greek stopper moves to another club, then the "red and whites" will have to collect half the amount of his transfer and this term is valid until August 31, 2016. .
Beyond that, the "Jialorosi" would be more positive about the possibility of discussing Manolas during the January transfer window, as Olympiacos will again receive a resale percentage, but this will be clearly less.
However, Antonio Conte is "burning" for a direct defense in Chelsea and in fact the international center back is currently at the top of his list, so it is not excluded that the new proposal of the "blues" will be made immediately!
They announced the acquisition of Marco Piazza in Juve

And Shirley, Dortmund
Following the acquisition of Mario Gotze, Dortmund is preparing to launch another "bomb", as Bild reports that on Friday it will also announce the acquisition of Andre Sirle!
Dortmund's interest in the 25-year-old footballer was known and confirmed. The difference between the Westphalian proposal and the Wolfsburg demands, however, was huge! Indicatively, the first proposal rejected by the "wolves" was 20 million euros, with Wolfsburg asking for 40! Dortmund, however, had the great advantage that Shirley wanted the transfer. And that clearly played a role.
According to Bild, the two teams shook hands for 30 million euros and within tomorrow the agreement between the two sides will take official form, with Dortmund announcing the acquisition of Shirley!
