France goalkeeper Mike Maignan criticizes the newly implemented penalty regulations influenced by Emiliano Martinez.

AC Milan and France goalkeeper Mike Maignan has taken a sarcastic dig at the new penalty rules which take effect from July 1. These rules aim to prevent keepers from taunting and disrupting penalty takers in the wake of Emiliano Martinez’s World Cup final antics. Under the new rules, keepers will be penalized even for just touching the posts and net of the goal, as well as any delaying tactics or celebrating if the penalty kick is missed. Maignan, however, has jokingly suggested that the goalkeepers would have their backs to shots by 2026. These recent changes have led to defensive tactics from players of the team taking the penalty, including their attempts to prevent the penalty spot from being scuffed.
