Leeds boss Bielsa analyzes football finances and match saturation

Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa controls match congestion and financial priorities in football

Bielsa speaks out against soccer finances and the saturation of matches as a result

Marcelo Bielsa has always been outspoken, and that is probably, to put it mildly, at best. But the lovable Argentine manager, already adored among Leeds United faithful, has stood up in defense of the purity of soccer in general with his recent comments that have pointed to the enormous financial influence on the sport and the consequent saturation of matches. that he has begotten from her.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference today in the run-up to Leeds hosting Liverpool at Elland Road, Bielsa spoke freely about the recent feud between the Brazilian FA and a handful of Premier League clubs that refuse to release its players amid Covid-19 concerns in the South American country.

But Bielsa didn’t stop there, reflecting more on the nature of a match schedule that becomes increasingly saturated year after year.

“It is convenient for the industry that there are many games. They don’t care if players are saturated, injured, or play poorly because they play too much. The (answer) is that we should all win less than we can have less games. “

With potential plans to have a biennial World Cup The Leeds manager certainly nailed it, given that such a shift, while framed as an opportunity to have more tournaments and thus more opportunities for smaller nations to qualify, is certainly driven by the financial aspect of the game. .

Reflecting on the positives of Saturday TV blackouts

Bielsa continued his assault on the football system during his press when he reflected on the Saturday TV blackout rule at 3 p.m., which he is a supporter of.

As reported by Phil Hay, Athletic Leeds United Writer, the Argentine admires the rule and the positive effect it has on other levels of the game in England, being “magnificent” given that it helps prioritize other professional levels of the English football pyramid over commercial income and business ties rooted in the Premier League.

It is not known which direction football will continue to take domestically, or around the world, although we all suspect that financial concerns will be the undisputed determining factor. But it is truly endearing to see that some major figures in the game are against exploiting their players and prioritizing money over the sheer joy that beautiful play can bring.
