Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez came out today and said that international breaks are damaging the Premier League. Martinez is complaining because several of his players are just coming back from international duty, and he and the players have little time to prepare before they play Manchester United this Saturday.
With the Premier League being filled with so many global stars, the league’s players have to fly to remote parts of the world, and then return to England with little time to relax and to prepare for the next games.
