John Aloisi denounces a “ridiculous” calendar in Australia

The draw between Macarthur FC and Western United FC (2-2) on Saturday on behalf of the 14th day of the A-League, was an opportunity for John Aloisi, coach of the Melbourne-based team, to anger the local authorities. The former Australian international (46 years old, 55 caps between 1997 and 2008) criticized the decision to organize the local Championship in summer, under high temperatures, as was still the case this weekend in Sydney.

“I think it’s ridiculous that we have to play in this heat, launched the technician. But footballers who have played and also coached are not always listened to. (Organizers) want to make it a good show, but you can’t have a good show when players are struggling to run. It’s hard work for the players. »

Other disciplines in the stadiums in winter

“I’ve been saying for years that I would like the game to be played in winter, but I can understand all the other obstacles we face in changing the seasons, continued Aloisi, referring to the other disciplines (rugby and Australian rules football) which occupy the stadiums the rest of the year. But it’s unfair to the players and the fans when you have to watch a game and play a game in this heat. It’s hard to really play your style when it’s like that. We should try to be intelligent on this subject. »
