“It makes me very sad to see how football is deteriorating”: Marcelo Bielsa worries about his discipline

We know he doesn’t have his tongue in his pocket. On Monday, on the eve of the Premier League match against Crystal Palace, Marcelo Bielsa, the coach of Leeds United, did not mince his words about the 2022 World Cup, organized in Qatar and at the end of autumn for Europeans (November 21 to December 18, 2022).

For the Argentinian, the choice to compete in the queen competition during the season is an aberration. “The World Cup is a spectacle that is played every four years and is the tribute that football pays to the world, but that makes no sense. The calendar is so overloaded that it does not take into account development and preparation ”.

For the former coach of OM and Losc, the reason is simple: the money and the ever-increasing commercialization of professional football which are distorting the game itself. “I have serious doubts about the future of professional football because it is constantly being marketed and the product is getting worse and worse. It makes me very sad to see how football is deteriorating. “

Certainly, the World Cup in Qatar continues to generate a lot of ink. To the protests of the players, like the Norwegian Erling Haaland, who had criticized the working conditions for the construction of the stadiums in Doha following the revelations of The Guardian (6,500 dead since the start of the construction site), were added those on how Qatar won the bet as reported by Sepp Blatter, the former FIFA boss.
