Level of play? Oh no! The football at this European Championship is a horror

Anyone hoping for a high level of play was disappointed at this European Championship. A final of football refuseniks like England or France is looming. That is not in the spirit of sport – and yet it is only logical.

We have to be grateful to Marcelo Bielsa. For the fact that he, who as a legendary coach has long made a good living from football, has nevertheless retained an honest and uncorrupted view of his profession. Of its shortcomings, its depths and perversions. Bielsa, always a philosopher on the sidelines, loves football like few others, and for this reason alone he regularly pillories it. He wants to save the sport from itself. Most recently, this happened a few days ago, when Bielsa, who is currently coaching Uruguay at the Copa América, once again dared to make a much-noticed all-round attack.
