Is the Lack of Winter Break Bad for England’s National Team?

Is the Lack of Winter Break Bad for England’s National Team?

Louis Van Gaal has raised a pretty logical issue: is the lack of winter break the reason behind England’s lack of trophies? According to him not having a winter break is very evil towards the football players, mainly because they are exhausted come the end of the season. It’s true that the Premier League has one of the most hectic winter schedules in Europe, but it is all a part of a tradition with which the English can hardly part. …
