However, not many knew the real reasons behind Ronaldo’s decision to dump the club where he has shined for so long. According to the Mirror quoting El Mundo, the former Manchester United star was furious that the Spanish League giants did not stand by him when he had issues with the government over tax issues in 2017. He was accused of tax evasion of almost €15m from 2011 to 2014 and was handed a suspended jail term with a fine of €18.8 million before the 2019 World Cup in Russia.

“I said I did not want risks,” El Mundo report Ronaldo said to agent Jorge Mendes after being charged in 2017. Ronaldo felt slighted by the club’s inactions concerning his salary and craved a contract renewal at the club but his demands were ignored. Given the payments to the Treasury, Ronaldo felt Real should oblige with a new deal, something he believed Barcelona did for Lionel Messi. And the forward felt betrayed by their silence over his demands for a new contract, which was lower than what Messi and Neymar earn, once he joined Paris Saint-Germain, as the top earners in world football. “It is a lack of respect that I, the Ballon d’Or winner, earn less than Messi and Neymar. It’s status, respect,” Ronaldo is reported to have explained.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo decided to join the Old Lady in a move to seek new adventure with Juventus, as Real’s unwillingness to declare him their greatest player of all time. Never were they willing to place Ronaldo over and above Alfredo Di Stefano, which Ronaldo simply could not understand, given his numbers and resume at the club. “They always put me behind Di Stéfano,” said a miffed Ronaldo. “I do not know what else I have to do.”

The rule that would be implemented under this is that there would be no chance given to any players to waste time on the pitch anymore, as substituted players would have to leave the pitch at the closest side of the pitch and card may probably be awarded for wasting time.
The Goalkeepers would, therefore, have to have a foot put on the line and would not be allowed to touch the goal posts before the shoot out of the penalty kicks. In this manner, no Goalkeeper would be able to exploit any chance to avert an opportunity to lead.
The coach would also have to be carded by the Referee in a similar as players were being carded during a match. Both yellow and red cards would also be applicable to coaches as well as starting from next season.
- The goal would be denied if the ball actually strikes any player’s hand during the development to have a goal.
- If any player should make any favourable moves in handling the ball outside the penalty kickbox, even if it regarded unintentional, freekicks would be awarded.
- The IFAB dispose of ‘manufactured’ restarts if there be any drop balls.
The IFAB make it clear that:
“The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.
“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.
“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”
