We know, we know.
Footballers are the lucky ones – they earn an obscene amount of money, get to travel all over the world and play the beautiful game in between.
But sometimes, we’re quite content to be sat at our very own desk, tea in hand, without the worry of flying home from Baku to face Liverpool this evening.
That’s the reality for Chelsea at the moment, with the Blues set for a gruelling, 3,000 mile flight home from Azerbaijan after playing Qarabag in the Champions League.
If that wasn’t bad enough, they then have a trip to Anfield to play Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
So, that’s about 6,000 miles to and from London to the Baku-based Azersun Arena.
They’ll then presumably train in London before packing their bags once again for the trip to the Northwest.
Considering Azerbaijan are four hours ahead of the UK and the flight will take roughly six hours, we feel a little tired just thinking about it.
It’s just as well Antonio Conte has a big squad to call upon, with rotation options Davide Zappacosta, Antonio Rudiger, Pedro, Willian and the well-rested David Luiz among the starters for Chelsea this evening.
Conte will be eager for the win in Baku, with his side competing with Roma for the top spot in Group C.
He’ll also be hoping for a good result in Anfield, with Manchester United just a single point above them in the Premier League table, while Spurs are just two points behind.
Ah, the life of a football manager eh?
