Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has stated that he would be happy to take a pay cut if it meant that the FA would provide English clubs with a smoother passage for European fixtures.
Sarri said: “Yes of course because the salary is not so important for me.
“It is important to have fun, for me. To work without working, because for me, it’s not work.
“I am not able to understand the decision of the Premier League because we have to go to Prague as an English team.
“So I’m not able to understand why we have to play on Monday. It’s very strange. I think they could have done more for the English teams in Europe.
“In Serie A teams play on Friday. Teams involved in the Europa League away from home, they can ask to play their next Serie A match on Monday.
“But this is the situation and we need only to adapt to this situation.”
Sarri’s Chelsea take on West Ham on Monday night only three days before their Europa League quarter-final clash with Slavia Praha.
