'Respect' initiative extended to the Premier League

The Barclays Premier League have agreed to sign up for the FA's 'Respect' initiative.

The Football League, the Professional Footballers' Association and the League Managers Association have all been part of the dialogue and will back the new guidelines from the start of this season.

Players, managers and coaching staff will be restricted in their contact with officials during games.

Sir Trevor Brooking, the FA's director of football development, said: "We don't want to see it disintegrating two or three weeks into the season because it's not working."
