Chelsea Maurizio Sarri expresses unhappiness with the pitch at Kiev’s NSC Olympic Stadium ahead of his team’s Europa League last-16 second leg tie later on Thursday.
Chelsea, who won last week’s first leg in London 3-0, trained at the stadium on Wednesday.
According to Sarri, he said: “The pitch is not good and I think that it’s really dangerous to play any football here. It’s really very dangerous for injuries,”.
“I don’t know the reason, probably winter, because I played here two years ago and the pitch was wonderful (but it is now) very, very dangerous.”
The NSC Olympic Stadium hosted last season’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, which the Spanish side won 3-1.
