WHY KYLE WALKER BECAME MANCHESTER CITY KEEPER AND WHAT THE LAW SAYS?
On the 88th Minute of Atlanta versus Manchester City game saw an unusual substitution. Riyad Mahrez, a midfielder came out and was replaced by Kyle Walker who is a defender as a goalkeeper making two saves before the closure of the game.
Manchester City went to San Siro on the 6th November 2019 as an away team against Atlanta with 2 keepers but ended up with none available to be on the field. Ederson Morales who the first choice keeper, suffered an injury was replaced by Claudio Bravo on the 46th Minute. On the 88th Minute, Claudio made a dangerous tackle on Josip Iličić which a red card offense and was sent off.
At this moment Pep Guardiola has exhausted all his keepers’ options and has to bring on defender into the poles as a keeper.
So what does the law says?
Law 3 clearly states: that there’s only one red-card offense that the goalkeeper cannot be guilty of, and that is denying an obvious goal by handling inside his own penalty area (although it could happen outside the PA). All others – violent conduct, spitting, offensive/insulting/abusive language, etc. – are reasons for the keeper to be sent off.
And if such a thing does happen: A match is played by two teams, each consisting of not more than eleven players, one of whom is the goalkeeper.
There must be a goalkeeper, so a new one must be appointed. If the team has substitutes left, then the reserve goalkeeper can come off the bench and another player is subbed out so there are still only 10 on the field. If there are no subs left, then one of the field players has to put on the keeper’s jersey and do his best! If he also gets a red card, then another player comes to replace him until there are 5 red cards then the match is abandoned because the same Law 3 states there cannot be less than 7 players on the field.
Notable players who have been third choice keepers in an emergency in history include Rio Ferdinand of Manchester United and John Terry of Chelsea. What are other players you can think of?
