Man Utd legend Dimitar Berbatov DISAGREES with Raphael Varane over rule changes and thinks fans will be delighted | The Sun
DIMITAR BERBATOV has admitted he is pleased with the new rule changes in football, unlike Manchester United defender Raphael Varane.
Last month, the Premier League launched a new approach in a bid to cut down on time wasting during games.
The rule changes will see an increase of time added onto the end of every game to compensate for when the ball is not in play.
It means that there will be more on-pitch action for fans to enjoy, which is something Berbatov is excited about.
Speaking to Betfair, the former Man Utd, Tottenham and Fulham striker said: "So far, we’ve seen lots of added on time in matches. To be honest, I'm in favour of the new added time rules.
"Sometimes in games, the actual playing is not what people expect it to be. If you calculate it, around 50 minutes is probably played in an average 90-minute game, with all the fouls and breaks in the match.

"I think the players will like it, obviously when you're winning 1-0 and holding onto a lead late in the game, then the players won't like it.
"At the end of the day, I think people want to watch more football, so I'm okay with it.
"The amount of time the ball is stopped during a game has to be compensated, and the only way is with additional time.
"With this, I think players will have to stop wasting time."
