In the realm of football, the saying ‘the more, the merrier’ is often associated with excitement among fans. This is because watching multiple tournaments can bring joy and thrill. However, behind the scenes, having a plethora of competitions can prove to be a strenuous struggle for both players and coaches. The manager of Al Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo’s team, has recently expressed his frustration and anger towards the crowded soccer schedule in Saudi Arabia.
Despite having a busy domestic schedule, the Al Nassr coach argues that the intensity of Middle Eastern tournaments is on a whole different level, making it difficult for them to even train properly.
The manager of Al Nassr criticizes Saudi Arabia for crowded game schedules.
On September 19th, Al Nassr traveled to Iran for their match in the AFC Champions League. Two days later, they also had a game in the Roshn Saudi League. Then, they had a match in the King Cup and two days after that, they played in the SPL. This Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo and his team will be facing Tajikistan’s Istikol in the AFC Champions League.
The quick turnaround before the upcoming match has frustrated Al Nassr manager Luis Castro. The Portuguese coach has criticized Saudi Arabia for its packed schedule, stating that no other country plays matches every two days. Due to the lack of training time, the team must rely solely on video analysis and player recovery, which Castro finds unreasonable but necessary.
Castro strongly emphasizes that having back-to-back games not only makes it difficult for players and coaches to sustain their top level of performance, but also limits their opportunities to focus on training. The 62-year-old’s statements are quite assertive. Other coaches who compete against Castro would likely agree with his sentiments.
