Here is the first Premier League player who can be penalized retrospectively for simulation
Everton striker Umar Niasse became the first player in the history of the Premier League, against whom a simulation charge was retrospectively challenged. The Senegalese demanded a penalty in the fifth minute of the clash with Crystal Palace after minimal contact with Scott Dan. The duel ended 2: 2, and Niasse was accused of succumbing to the judging brigade. The striker must respond to the charge by the end of today`s working day, and if he is found guilty, which will most likely happen, he will take a penalty from two meetings.
A committee of three members - a former referee, a former manager and a former footballer - will determine if Niaas deliberately simulated. The new rule that players can be penalized retrospectively for simulations was introduced in May.
