Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger leads coaches of Massimiliano Allegri, Jose Mourinho, Julen Lopetegu, Carlo Ancelotti, Diego Simeone, and Thomas Tuchel plus others at an annual gathering on Wednesday in Nyon, where they called for the rule to be changed as UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin was present at the meeting.
According to BBC Sport quotes that UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti said: “The coaches think that scoring goals away is not as difficult as it was in the past,”
“They think the rule should be reviewed and that’s what we will do.”
Away goals were first introduced at the 1965-66 Cup Winners’ Cup as an alternative to tossing a coin or staging a replay at a neutral ground when the aggregate score in a two-legged tie ended level.
Marchetti also revealed there was a consensus for more countries to join Italy and England in closing their transfer windows before the start of the season.
“The coaches are of an opinion that there should be a unified window and the window should close before the competition starts,” concluded the Italian.
“The idea would be to try and bring them into line.”
The 2018-19 Champions League season will kick off September 18.
