New handball laws interest Dyche

17th April 2019, 15:27 by Nick Harris

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is interested to see how the new handball regulations play out next season.

Cardiff wanted penalties given in the Premier League clash at Turf Moor last Saturday when the ball hit Ben Mee's hand, but got nothing, much to the annoyance of their manager Neil Warnock.

Next season there are rule changes, where if the ball hits you it is not a penalty, but the changes are very long and complicated and Dyche says it will be interesting to see how they are implemented.

Dyche told the Burnley Express: "Everyone is a bit confused with how they view it, that one would be impossible for me, but I was a centre-half, he's faced it on to his arm, there's no cleverness in it.

"If you're a centre-half and one goes past you and you see the centr- forward, you might have a little panic and nudge it, but there's no intent to the moment, why would he, he has nothing to gain.

"It's going to be interesting to see how it's officiated, and a lot of things."
