Maurizio Sarri, the manager of Chelsea says that his side running to final of Carabao Cup is much more interesting feat than if Tottenham or Liverpool reaches the final of Champions League.
The Blues have defeated the Reds at Anfield in the 3rd round of League Cup and had been able to overcome Tottenham in penalties of the 2 legged semi-finals for reaching the showpiece of Wembley against Manchester City. The one that they had on penalties following a goalless draw.
Liverpool is going to face Barcelona in the semi-finals of Champions League in the next week. They have come out of the group stage which included Napoli, Sarri’s former club and Paris Saint Germain. Also, they have defeated Porto and Bayern Munich in the knockout rounds.
While Tottenham recuperated from being defeated in the first 2 matches and drawing the 3rd one for advancing from a group that features PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, and Inter Milan.
The squad of Mario Pochettino had defeated Borussia Dortmund by 4-0 and had edged out Manchester City on the away goals in the thriller for setting up a semi-final match against Ajax. However, Sarri doesn’t give much importance to their achievements.
He said that the Premier League is not that difficult. In order to get into the finals of League Cup, they had to play against Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester City. It was more convenient to get to Champions League’s finale. He says that he feels people give too much importance to the Champions League. No doubt, it is the most important competition in Europe and thus, in the world. However, it is a competition where one has to be lucky.
