“I thought it was really poor from UEFA. Play the game the next night. It shouldn’t have finished that day. Secondly, anybody who’s played a 12 o’clock kick-off, you’re getting up at half seven or eight in the morning, you’re having pre-match, the lads won’t have slept.

I thought it was disgraceful. And it’s only come out now, you know. I said the other day, UEFA have looked after them but it sounds like they haven’t and it sounds like a lot of them didn’t want to play.

But Simon Kjaer, who’s got a lot of plaudits, captain fantastic, he had to leave the pitch after 60 minutes, so I think that speaks volumes.”

Hard to disagree with Duffer on this one.
