It is understood that FIFA is planning to implement the same rule being followed by the rugby union. As per the rules in rugby, only captains can talk to referees.

The behavior of the players can be much better says van Basten, and the game’s official governing body, FIFA is planning to take the necessary steps. They are aiming to improve game’s behavior and implement the rules which ensure more respect for officials, says van Basten.

“There are a lot of players now who are complaining during a game,” he said.

Speaking to the BBC, the former Ajax and AC Milan forward added: “I am sure the behavior of the players can be better – we are thinking about putting it back in the right direction.”

From the start of this season, English football announced plans to ensure that referees are protected. They introduced various new rules which reduced the intolerable behavior.

The referees are now allowed to issue red card if a player confronts match officials, use offensive language or make gestures towards them. But these are allowed only in English football which includes the Premier League, English Football League and Football Association.

It is obvious that these things normally happen because of fast and highly competitive football. But for professional players and managers, there is a line which shouldn’t be crossed.

The 52 year old Dutch international believes that the new video referee system is a step in right direction. Now the match officials can watch a pitch-side replay of key incidents on a small monitor.

During the Club World Cup, they started using this new system and was commended by FIFA president Gianni Infantino.

“This is what we have to do to help the referees,” Van Basten said.

“We try to make a good product – dynamic, exciting, but in the end also honest.”

“There’s a lot of emotion in the game and that’s what’s good – but we have to control it also.”

In addition, he also said that FIFA can learn about new rules from various other sports including rugby. “I think we can learn from every sport and they can learn from us – but we have to confront the problem.”
