Chelsea Coach Maurizio Sarri has shared his views on the strength of club football compared with the International stage.
The gaffer who joined Chelsea from Napoli last summer also shared his thought on VAR and the controversies that trail it following his sides FA cup defeat to Tottenham.
Though VAR was used in the match, it was not without controversies and the Chelsea Coach when informed about how effective the VAR was during the World cup, he claimed not to have followed the tournament due to lack of interest.
“I did not see anything at the World Cup. I don’t like the national teams. There is nothing to learn,” Sarri told the club’s official website.
”Every coach thinks like me, but it is unusual to say it. It is impossible to organise very well a team in 30 days. I think every team in the World Cup would lose against a top-level club team in every match, but I think also that it is normal, because in a club you have time to organise a team, in a national team you have no time to organise the team so it is very difficult to see an organised team in the Euros or the World Cup. It is only a question of time I think.”
When asked the direct could Chelsea beat England question, Sarri’s response was: ‘I think so, why not, our level is not less than the England national team.
“We can draw, we can lose, we can win. Maybe [I have had] more time than the national team but not enough to organise the team as I want. Next week will be the first week without three matches since August. The time is not enough.”
