With his team fighting in both the Champions League and La Liga and averaging a game every three days, Ancelotti accused UEFA and FIFA of only thinking about themselves. He also stated that something has to change.
Speaking at a press conference, the Real Madrid manager said;
“Objectively, the calendar doesn’t make sense. It’s too tight, with too many games. We have to look at the health of the players. They’re the most important part of football, but everyone thinks about themselves: the league think about themselves, the federation think about themselves, FIFA think about themselves, UEFA think about themselves. It isn’t good for football. It isn’t right. Something has to change. Too many games.”
