FIFA technical director Marco van Basten has proposed scraping offside rule from football, according to a report by talkSPORT.

The former AC Milan and Holland striker has suggested scrapping offside rule would revolutionise football.

Other suggestions from Van Basten include replacing penalty shoot-outs with eight-second run-ups, and introducing orange cards to send players to sin-bins for ten minutes.

Van Basten also proposed that players should be involved in fewer matches each season, games should go straight into penalties without extra-time, children’s games to be limited to eight-a-side, stopping the clock every time the ball goes out in the last ten minutes and only allowing captains to speak to referees.

Van Basten wants to listen to views on his proposals before the proposals are put before the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
