Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel said on Monday that he was not a fan of the new Champions League format which will force teams to play more matches in a campaign and put a strain on the players.
“I’m not sure if I like it. I can only see more games and it is hard for me to be excited at all,” Tuchel told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s semi-final, first leg against Real Madrid.
“All these discussions about the Super League made us forget about the new format of the Champions League. Did they ask and coaches or players? I don’t think so.
“We have so many new formats, with a (UEFA) Nations League as well… It’s not quality, it’s just more games. At the same time, we have just three substitutes in the Premier League, which is the toughest competition,” the German manager added.
