Manchester City, says the director of football a lot of damage England's chances at Euro and World Cup
Roberto Mancini has joined a long line of leaders of the Premier League to cite exhaustion as the main reason why England constantly disappointed at major tournaments. More immediately, Italian manager of Manchester City is most concerned about the impact of what he considered serious equipment congestion and resulting impacts in terms of fatigue of the journey of his own team before the League Cup quart -final against Arsenal on Tuesday night.
"On Monday, we go to London and we will change the whole team, because it's a crazy situation," said Mancini, who says the field in a completely different range of departure of the team that tied 1-1 with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
"Arsenal played on Saturday, we played on Sunday evening. Monday went to London and played Tuesday night. Incredible. I think that's why the national team comes Championships and European Cups and World are dying. Players do not have time to recover. For us to play again in two days like this so soon after the Champions League [visited Naples last week] is incredible. "
City Manager believes that the Premier League must intervene to protect the welfare of players and serve the greater good of the game. "I do not know who to blame. However, the Premier League would have said something about it. It is important to play, but it is important to recover. It takes three days between games and the next. We will have the same situation January, when we played Sunderland [the New Year's Day] and against Liverpool in two days. play Liverpool three days before us. Is this correct? I do not think so. "
Tuesday, the match schedule favors neither the city nor the Liverpool since, with the next Kenny Dalglish, both committed to Chelsea in the Carling Cup quarter-final in the capital, according to barely had time to take breath after their efforts on Sunday. Dalglish in protest threatened to form a junior team at Stamford Bridge and his counterpart in the city is also impaired.

Despite starting on Sunday, Gael Clichy is also expected to participate. Arsenal, the left side is the former desperate to face his former club, but had to get used to the rotation policy Mancini. "There is a big difference for me, because you always want to play for Arsenal and was used to playing week after week," said Clichy.
However, a. I hope Mancini defender may have been exaggerated to make 11 changes, trying to see the big picture "Of course we are disappointed, but I am not alone, and I played in some big games," Has he said. "I think in February and March show the benefits because they still have fresh legs to go all the way. You need a large staff to do so.
"We must accept the decision of the manager, but I'm ready for Arsenal and I will be more than happy to play. This is a great club and a great team, with many of my friends are always there. "
