Sound of Football Podcast 436 - Heads in the sand

Head injuries are back in the news after a collision in the Arsenal v Wolves game saw Raul Jimenez hospitalised with a fractured skull. IFAB have announced that this month they will propose adding a new law to allow teams the opportunity to replace concussed players without losing one of their regulation substitutions. On this week's podcast, we discuss how these new rules could work in practice.

We also look at the contenders to fill the vacant position as Sunderland manager, and take a moment to reflect on the life of Diego Maradona - one of the World's greatest ever footballers - who died last week at the age of 60.
