Roy Hodgson Attacks Clubs for Treating International Breaks as Holiday: The Nightly EPL

roy hodgson Roy Hodgson Attacks Clubs for Treating International Breaks as Holiday: The Nightly EPL

Roy Hodgson came out Thursday on the attack, saying that too many Premier League clubs treat internationals as a vacation. Hmm, maybe everyone should stop calling it the international break, for starters?!

“These breaks are being seen as the 10-day break that you don’t always get during the season. It concerns me that we are guilty of accepting it’s the international break so we can give the player 10 days off to go to Dubai. I would still like to see the international break being a time when players go to play for their international teams, and it is seen as an important time.

“If you’re a club manager now you’ve got no excuse. Uefa are putting an end to the friendly debate by putting them in clearly defined international dates so you can quite easily plan your time around these blocks. If your players need a rest it’s not obligatory that it has to be during the international break. It can be done during the other 40-odd weeks of the year when they are with their clubs.”
