Speaking to Movistar, Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla admitted that the introduction of the new five-substitution rule per team in La Liga for the remainder of the 2019-20 season is necessary for players, teams and coaches.

It’s something that is important. We’re going to have games every three days. The coach will also be lucky enough to rest players and rotate more often. Teams will be able to go into the next round of fixtures in better shape because of it.”
