Virgil van Dijk is just one of the many players who has spoken out against the hectic schedule.

“In England, we believe the schedules are too busy,” he said during his press conference with the Netherlands.

“The players are getting paid well but it should never come at the cost of our health.

“We keep having to play more and more games. We as players should start saying something about it, contribute to a solution.”

Shearer, who played for over 20 years, spoke out against the complaints labelling them as ‘nonsense’.

“Nonsense. Nonsense. Players are playing too much football? What? I mean come on.” he said on The Rest is Football podcast.

“I know you should never mention the money, but you’ve got bigger squads than ever, more substitutes than ever, getting paid more money than ever, you’ve got the best physios, the best technology, the best of everything.”
