Avoid Danger from Big Bad Wolf Fans: PFA Considers Adding Protective Netting on Pitches

Rio Ferdinand

THE LATEST ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE NEWS – Following the coin-pelting incident that injured Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand in last Sunday’s Manchester league derby, the Professional Footballers’ Association is now thinking of surrounding pitches with protective nets.

Gordon Taylor, PFA chief executive, said that such move is necessary to protect the players from erring fans seeking to leave a footpr1nt in matches through pitch invasion and throwing random objects on the pitch.

Daily Mail pundit Jamie Redknapp, for his part, called on players to restrain from taunting opposition fans so that they could avoid flying objects from angry fans. He said that players have to be responsible for their actions on the pitch.
