The new rule was passed by the governing body at its annual general meeting on Thursday, however, the man once charged with leading the country’s national team isn’t having it.
Allardyce is clearly against the new regulations, questioning what will happen to players who are wrongly booked for simulation.
Speaking at this afternoon’s press conference ahead of Palace’s end of season clash with Manchester United, Allardyce said, “It’s utter rubbish, because what about the lad that gets booked that didn’t dive?
“What are they going to do with that?”
The 62-year-old, who managed England for one game before leaving his role due to allegations of malpractice, added:
“They’re going to say, ‘Oh that’s unlucky, next time we’ll try to get that right.’
“So, bring technology in and we can look at it on the day and then bring a sin bin in so we can put him in the sin bin for 10 minutes and then put him back on and stop paying all these people money to do rubbish situations in the game.”
Under the new rule, a panel will review footage from the weekend each Monday looking for cases of simulation and any player unanimously found guilty of diving would be given a suspension.
