SOCCEROOS great John Kosmina says the decision to play an AFLX tournament at Coopers Stadium was “disrespectful” to Adelaide United.

The pitch had already looked patchy following last month’s Foo Fighters concert, but its condition wasn’t helped by Thursday night’s AFLX, with the Reds having to play at the venue just two days later.

Kosmina said the AFL should have to play the “sugar hit” tournament at one of its venues, instead of Hindmarsh.

“For me, I grew up in Adelaide, I grew up at Hindmarsh Stadium — for me, that’s the holy grail of football in South Australia,” he said on Sunday Shootout.

“If AFL want to come up with some sort of sugar hit for their fans and hybridise or bastardise their sport just to try and compete with football — because that’s what they’re trying to do because they realise football is so strong — if they want to do that, fine.

EPL news 2021, Frank Lampard sacked, Chelsea FC manager, Thomas Tuchel, replacement, fired, Premier League results

Published

on

Frank Lampard was summoned to breakfast with two Chelsea chiefs before being told he had been sacked in a meeting which lasted 30 minutes, according to reports.

Despite briefly topping the table at the start of December, Chelsea have been in poor form ever since and find themselves down in ninth place in the Premier League, 11 points off leaders Manchester United.

His 13 years at the club as a player bought him more time in the job that most of his predecessors under owner Roman Abramovich, but the failure to get his $386m signings playing ultimately proved a price too costly for him.

German Thomas Tuchel is to replace him, with Chelsea keen to get in a coach who speaks the same language as big-money signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, who are both Germany internationals.
