He does have a point - must clubs are competing in two domestic cups, then UEFA / Europa league, the league itself, international breaks - and then training nearly every single day! That is extremely taxing!

training makes them fit.. PLUS every club focus on two of them. if a player make 100k+ per week he better work his a$$ off. that's like yearly payment for normal people and work 40+hours per-week.. the thing is german league have one month break in winter when premier league doesn't. hmm...
