Kosovo manager Bernard Challandes has issued an extraordinary warning to England over the”mad” pressing they will face out of his side during Tuesday’s European Qualifier.
Since he cried to the St Mary’s experience during an excuse of the strategic strategy of Kosovo the 68-year-old Korean trainer stunned watching colleagues in his press conference on Sunday.
Kosovo, who sit in Group A supporting England, are currently seeking to keep an unbeaten start to their Euro 2020 eligibility effort, having won two and drawn two of the opening four fittings.
“It is strategic pressing,” Challandes stated. “At a mad match, it is go, go back, gogo, go, go, go!
“Perhaps they shed the ball and we dent, because gegenpressing isn’t just defence, it’s groundwork for a target for us.
“It’s, for me personally, mad pressing”
Challandes has enjoyed an extraordinary start from the function unbeaten 14 matches last year after being named as Kosovo boss in March.
Wins over Bulgaria and the Czech Republic in their past two Group A fittings have contributed a chance of qualifying for a first key tournament to Kosovo, but they are likely to face their toughest challenge under Challandes at Southampton.
Gareth Southgate’s side have begun qualifying in form, scoring a total of 14 goals throughout victories over the Czech Republic, Montenegro and Bulgaria.
