In England You Don’t Protect Players - Guardiola Says by owoicho13(m): 2:51pm On Jan 03, 2018
Pep Guardiola saw Manchester City return to winning ways at the end of the Premier League’s exhausting holiday schedule, but warned the English game is in danger of destroying its top stars.

A spell of four games in 11 days has taken its toll, with City’s Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus sustaining a knee ligament injury which will sideline him for four to six weeks. Full-back Kyle Walker also limped off after the victory over Watford with what appeared to be a groin injury. “We are going to check it out, he (Walker) might have a little problem,” Guardiola said.

“But what everyone saw in the last weeks is how many injuries the players have. We are going to kill them. “The federation bosses have to reflect a little bit. It’s not normal to play (December) 31st and two days later. “I know the show must go on, but… that is not normal.

“They (the authorities) have to control it. They don’t protect the players and they are who the people come to watch. “Here in England you don’t protect the players, you have to look for the quality, not the quantity.” Guardiola is the latest in a long list of high-profile managers to question the traditional English fixture schedule this season, his Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho being chief among them. And while the City manager believes in the traditions of the English game, he believes the Premier League will have to review television schedules which have led to a lopsided fixture list with some teams playing on two-days recovery and others up to five.

The English FA need to protect these players by reducing the number of features in December. It contribute to their poor outing in Europe.
