After reports emerged last week that the International Football Association Board had signed off on the trials of introducing blue card to football, FIFA president, Gianni Infantino has rejected the proposed plan.

 

It would have been the first time since the introduction of the classic yellow and red cards at the 1970 World Cup that a new card would be used in football.

 

However, following an immediate backlash to the plans, Infantino has now told Sky UK such card does not exist.

 

“Blue cards? This is a topic that is non existent for us,” he said.

 

“If you want a title it is: red card to the blue card. No chance, no way.”
