Sven wants ball debate

The former England manager said: “I can understand the goalkeepers are not happy with it at all, but it’s too late to do something about that in this World Cup.

“It’s a decision for the authorities for the next big tournament, whether it’s in Africa or Europe or wherever it is.

“I think it should be discussed and everyone should listen to the top goalkeepers in the world because I am sure this doesn’t do them any favours at all.

“Maybe we will see some goals, but discussion between managers, the company who produce the football and the football players, that would be good.”
