Mancini blames chaotic fixture list for England's poor performance
London, Nov 29 (ANI): Slamming the chaotic fixture list of the England team, Roberto Mancini has claimed its draining nature is the major reason why Three Lions continually fail at major tournaments.
The Manchester City's manager believes England will continue to under-perform at World Cups and European Championships if the demand on players does not relent.We will change all the team because this is an incredible situation. Arsenal played on Saturday, we play Sunday evening. Monday travel to London and then we play Tuesday night.
"It is incredible. I think this is the reason why the national team arrive for European Championships, World Cups and they are failing. The players don't have time to recover," The Daily Mail quoted Mancini, as saying.
Liverpool and City wanted their Barclays Premier League game brought forward by 24 hours, to give them more time to prepare for difficult last-eight matches.
But the Premier League turned down their request and the Football League because of TV commitments and, most significantly, as there was no space in the calendar.
Mancini said: "To play again in two days like this so soon after the Champions League is incredible. We should play with 11 young players, maybe 14 or 15 years old. To make a statement? Yes.It's not correct. Not so much for us but for the players. It's not right. But we'll go there and try to win it, of course." (ANI)
