A Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the coach of Manchester United, once Daniel Bergara’s lookalike in rojiblanco, such was his ease in scoring the lifesaving goal of his team coming off the bench, the demons brought him the other day when he was forced to play a Premier match on Saturday morning, when the one with the Champions League of the previous Wednesday had ended at eleven at night. Jürgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, sympathized with him. The Spanish version of the anger summum starred it, without solidarity, that for something we are different, Julen Lopetegui, who cried out in the wilderness of LaLiga because his game against Osasuna had not been scheduled on Sunday, when he had played the European confrontation on Wednesday and there was a subsequent league break.
“We killed the goose that laid the golden eggs”, emphasized the donostiarra. Leaving aside that only those of Messi, Cristiano, Neymar and very few others are gold, that in ovoid matters there is a lot of costume jewelery, the Sevilla coach was right. Many leaders fill their mouths that it is necessary to take care of the health of professionals and then they are forced to gigantic efforts. More so this season, in which the Champions League matches have been scheduled weekly and not every fortnight, that the breaks for the national team matches are taking place with three matches – one friendly for the federative Sunday and two officials – instead of par habitual and that the celebration of the Eurocopa, in the middle of June, forces to close the domestic competitions as soon as possible.
Being true the complacent attitude of the football programmers, it would be advisable for the clubs themselves to act swiftly. The calendar had been known since the summer and I don’t think that if it had been requested and aired in time, Sevilla would have been refused to place the game against the Navarrese on Sunday. Just in case, repair now for Nervión that in December expects the following: Chelsea, at home, Wednesday 2; Real Madrid, in Nervión, predictably 5, and Rennes, out, on Tuesday 8. Florentinos, who play in Donetsk on the 1st, are sure to like two in the afternoon on Saturday.
