Sassuolo boss reveals he does not want to lead his team out against Milan amid Super League saga

By Oliver Fisher -

Sassuolo boss Roberto De Zerbi has sensationally remarked that he does not even want to lead his team out for tomorrow’s game against Milan.

The world of football is in complete chaos at the moment after it was announced that 12 of Europe’s biggest clubs intend to break away and form their own new midweek competition called the Super League, with Milan, Inter and Juventus among those involved.

Tomorrow night the Rossoneri face Sassuolo at San Siro as the players will try and put all the media frenzy to the back of their mind and secure another win towards a top four finish after Sunday’s success against Genoa.

However, Sassuolo’s head coach De Zerbi is not happy about the current situation at all. He spoke to the media ahead of the game at San Siro and his comments were relayed by the journalist Francesco Porzio on Twitter.

“This is like a coup d’etat in football. I don’t want to play the game tomorrow because Milan are one of the founders of the Super League. I told the club and the players my idea but if the club force me to go, I’ll go,” he said.

“It’s like the son of a labourer can’t dream of becoming a surgeon, a lawyer or a doctor. It’s as if they had told me as a kid in the schoolyard, that ball’s mine. I’m taking it. Football has a role in society that’s different from other sports.”

  1. So, now Milan’s management are not allowed to make decisions on what’s best for the club or the competitions they want or do not want to join; they have to join the competitions that Sassuolo approve, and make decisions regarding the long-term financial stability of the club, only as long as Sassuolo are not offended by it. Nobody’s stopping anyone from becoming a surgeon but logically not everyone can work at Mayo Clinic, much like not everyone can play in the NBA. If you work hard and the position is available and the right clinic is interested in you, you might get in. Scamacca and Locatelli might very well play for Super League teams next season, just to mention two players owned by Sassuolo, and that’s because they are good enough, and they have earned it. The Super League is not taking that away from them.

    1. And who made Milan the big club? Management? NO…
      Fans, UEFA competition, FIFA competition, domestic competition; they are the ones who made Milan.
      Without billionaires football will still flourish.
