UEFA replies Maurizio Sarri after Europa League ‘excuse’

Timothy Aiyeku



UEFA have finally reacted to the complaints laid by Blues boss Maurizio Sarri over Dynamo Kiev’s pitch ahead of their Europa League tie, later on Thursday evening.

The Italian boss had described the pitch as a disaster, stressing that it is too bad to play while admitting that he is left with no choice than to play as it is too late to make any adjustment.

He also blasted the UEFA for insisting on player’s registration but failing to ensure that the players have a good play with a perfect pitch.

However, UEFA in their reaction refused to share Chelsea’s sentiment but noted that there is no reason for any concern over the pitch because it does not pose any risk to the playability.

UEFA in a statement made it clear that they have contacted an official and are confident about the approval of the stadium for the game.

However, the West London outfit already secured a 3-0 win against Dynamo Kiev at the Stamford Bridge and will be looking forward to sealing the win later today.

Suggestions are that Chelsea should not take the game for granted as the home team could pose a surprise just as it was done between Man United and PSG as well as Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
