Wilder: No sympathy for Chelsea
Middlesbrough manager Chris Wilder has ignited the FA Cup flames by saying he has no sympathy for the club in question ahead of the quarter-final against Chelsea this weekend.
Boro’s manager was currently discussing the restrictions imposed on Premier League attire, and I think the call to that decision is unfair, given the real challenges others have faced in recent years.
“I agree to the sanctions,” he said. I think everyone will understand why they were placed. For me, the noise coming from it was misguided.
“Isn’t the club at risk? It’s not like the Macclesfield or Bury we saw in the football pyramid. It shouldn’t have happened.
“This is an iconic football club, but if we all know our football, we know where they were 25 years ago. So is Manchester City. I remember playing that club in the late 80s. And they changed I did.
“Someone comes to your football club, invests hundreds of millions of pounds and turns it into the club where Chelsea is today. The winning team, world-class coaches and players, world-class infrastructure, women’s team that wins everything, youth team and academy that won the best Youth Cup in the country.
“I don’t think there’s an incredible amount of sympathy for what’s really happening in football. I don’t think Chelsea supporters would expect that either. The takeover will take a short time and Chelsea will go back, and from strength to strength. moving forward.”
