thumbnail Hello,

The Spurs boss was upset at a number of decisions which did not go his side’s way in their 2-1 defeat to Stoke and has used his newspaper column to suggest some changes to the game

Harry Redknapp has suggested trialling a new system for football which would see two refs on the pitch at the same time.

The Tottenham Hotspur boss was aggrieved with a number of refereeing decisions that went against his side in their loss to Stoke City on Sunday and after the match he was critical of the officials, which saw him warned by the FA over his future conduct.

Writing in his column for The Sun, Redknapp admits that referees have an extremely difficult job but said that having two on the pitch could be one way of reducing the number of mistakes made.

"Last weekend was full of controversial incidents in the Premier League. It seems hardly a week goes by when referees and managers' reactions are not creating headlines and friction in the game,” he wrote.

“Refs have a tough job, I know that. The other managers know that.

“I don't want to criticise them, but if we can think of a solution where they can work more effectively and we avoid these fall-outs surely it must be better for us all."

Redknapp went on to say: "In Europe, we have had extra refs on the touchline and that has helped.

“But two on the pitch could be something worth experimenting with.

“We have lots of top-class referees so it could only make their job easier if they got some help on the pitch.

“Key decisions are being made in big games and there is so much more pressure involved nowadays.

“Virtually every match is on the telly and I think we must look at every angle of making sure we get it right."
