Sarri: "We're In A Time Where The Sport Has Become An Industry Where Appearances Are More Important. Playing 60 To 70 Games A Year Robs Players Of Training And Makes Games Less Exciting."

October 20, 2022

The tight schedule of matches ahead of the 2022 World Cup began to be complained about by several clubs. One of the protests was filed by Lazio coach, Maurizio Sarri. Lazio is known to currently have to play in two competitions.

Serie A, the Italian League, is one of them and will condense the schedule of matches in exchange for losing one month of the 2022 World Cup. Consequently, teams in the league must play between 7 and 9 matches this month and the league will begin to enter a break on 13 November.

Lazio plays a total of 8 matches in the Italian League and Europa League. The players only take a 3 to 4 day break between each match. That's why Sarri complained.

"Football has to be saved from himself and his institutions," said Sarri, quoted by Football Italia.

"We're walking down a path where it's impossible to show the beauty in the game. Playing 60 to 70 games a year robs players of training and makes games less exciting," he explained.

He mentioned how the sport became a business. Furthermore, Sarri believes that the more modern football is, the more immoral it is for players, as this can lead to injuries. The former Juventus boss believes it's just business and unfair to players and other direct footballers.

"We're in a time where the sport has become an industry where appearances are more important. It's ridiculous," Sarri added.

"It's as immoral as the world today. If an actor gets 30 million euros for a movie, it's immoral, but the income justifies it. I don't think it's fair, but it's part of the world now," Sarri said.
