Maurizio Sarri predicts who would win in a match between his Chelsea side and England

Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea - Carabao Cup: Semi-Final First Leg

How good was last summer’s World Cup?

The 2018 edition of the tournament will go down as one of the best in history thanks to a ridiculous amount of goals, endless drama and VAR fun.

Oh, and England won a penalty shootout on their way to the semi-finals.

It was a brilliant month-long festival of football and fans couldn’t get enough.

However, there was one person that somehow didn’t watch a single minute of action - Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri.

"I didn't see anything in the World Cup," Sarri said after being told VAR was useful in Russia. "I didn't see a match. I don't like the national team."

"Because there isn't anything to learn. It is a usual position - every coach thinks like me. It is unusual to say it.


"Every team in the World Cup will lose against the top level club teams in every match. That is normal because in a club you have time to organise a team but in the national team you have no time."



So, does that mean his Chelsea side could beat England then?

"I think so," he said. "Why not?"

"Our level is not less than the England national team.”



Many fans would consider international football to be a higher level than club football but Sarri clearly doesn’t share that opinion.

Instead, Sarri insisted that fellow managers share his opinion that international football is a bit of a waste of time.

"Every coach thinks like me. It is unusual to say it," Sarri added.

Hmmmm, we’re not sure about that, Maurizio.
