Best Answer

In soccer, goalkeepers are tasked to protect themselves. For physical protection from the likely injuries sustained from diving saves, goalkeepers are allowed to wear track suit bottoms as part of their uniform. Arguably, the goalkeeper position is often the most dangerous. Referees often give goalkeepers more leeway on conduct associated with dangerous play due to the inherent danger of the position.
