As football has resumed after the Coronavirus break, which started in March, many temporary changes have been made to make football better and adjust well in this time of Coronavirus pandemic.
One of the rules is that a club will be allowed to make five substitutions in a match during three breaks only, meaning managers have to do more than one substitution at a time. This five-substitution rule has been brought in to help players from getting more injured as they will be playing many games in such a short amount of time.
Many managers have used their five substitutions wisely to good effect, but until now no one has brought all the five substitutes at once.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the first one in Premier League history to make quintuple substitutions. This historic thing happened on 25th June as United took on Sheffield United.

What did the fourth official do to Ole to deserve that quintuple substitution? Absolute cruelty.— Brooks Peck (@BrooksDT) June 24, 2020
