Paul Merson, the pundit from Sky Sports thinks that Leicester City is going to be served better if they don’t play European football in the next season.
The dream of UEFA Europa League was starting to feel like quite a stretch in the last few days of the reign of Claude Puel. This was a matter of if instead of when. However, the arrival of Brendan Rodgers had changed this. The scenario in this season is different. The opinion about the maximum that can be achieved has also changed.
The result of Leicester has also got better and so has their fortune which separates them from the Wolverhampton Wanderers only by little after the later had been defeated to Southampton and Burnley.
Everyone has started to believe in the European dream and hopes that Leicester City is going to showcase their A‑game for this run-in. Paul Merson is not convinced by the fact that European Football is something which can be beneficial for the club.
One might say that he does have a point. There is no need to look any further than Burney for understanding the extent of the game which the qualifications of Europa League might have at times. This will lead to an exhausting pre-season. When Premier League begins, there will be the legs of the squad combating relegation in the month of December.
Looking at the positive side, it can be said that European football rewards financially and is a great experience for all young players. Hence, there are positive, as well as negative sides to it.
