Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli has compared losing despite dominating possession to flirting with a woman only for her to leave with another man.
Chile were beaten 3-0 by Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier in in Montevideo on Tuesday night despite having 73% possession in the match.
When informed of that statistic after the match, Sampaoli responded with an analogy to explain why it counted for little.
Sampaoli said: “One night, I went to a bar, I was with a woman. We talked all night. We laughed, we flirted, I paid for several drinks of hers
“At around 5am, a guy came in, grabbed her by the arm and took her to the bathroom. He made love to her and she left with him. That doesn’t matter, because I had most of the possession on that night.”
