OM boss Jacques-Henri Eyraud has an amazing idea for distant goals

Surprising words. At a summit of start-ups in Aix-Marseille, the president of
OM Jacques-Henri
Eyraud suggested that distant targets could count double:

The game Fifa decided that a goal scored with a shot outside the penalty area was worth two points. Why is Fifa, Electronic Arts, imagining that? (…) Why would not it be a goal from a distance of thirty yards tomorrow on real terrain, he would not earn two points, but only one? This is an example, there are many others. It is an extremely conservative sport, but it has to adapt. "

Jacques-Henri Eyraud also returned to a possible reduction in playing time: "Should we go to 80 or 70 for a football match? So here is the rebellion … And why is not it worth asking the question?"

His proposal for "goals that count twice" is already generating very strong opinions in social networks.
