I don’t think Inzaghi really had or has a rule that player on yellow should be subbed off.
Inzaghi has said countless times he has taken off players because they got yellow cards.
Acerbi even said recently he had to convince his coach to leave him on the pitch after getting a yellow.
In an interview with Italian television broadcaster DAZN after the match, and as reported by FCInterNews.it, Acerbi admitted that he had to speak to Inzaghi and reassure him that he would remain disciplined, with the coach deciding to leave his defender on for the remainder of the game.
“He’s afraid of being left with 10 men due to those random chances that happen on the pitch. Today I didn’t know if he’d take me off or throw me down, but I told him to stay calm,” the Italy international claimed.
“A defender’s skill is knowing how to play with the yellow card. Attention is the main quality of a defender, with a yellow card you usually play with more care.”
