Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed disapproval about the timing of his team’s English Premier League matchup with host Manchester City. This comes after they defeated Brentford 3-0 on Sunday in the competition’s 12th round.
There will be a two-week break in the Premier League due to the upcoming international fixtures. Manchester City and Liverpool‘s heavyweight match is scheduled for November 25th in the afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.
With 28 points, Manchester City, the winners of the previous three seasons, now leads Liverpool by just one point in the league standings.
Klopp has consistently voiced his disapproval of the English Premier League calendar, particularly with regard to games scheduled early in the day. His grievances are being reiterated at this time.
After the encounter between Liverpool and Brentford, Klopp remarked, “How can officials set a match like this on Saturday at 12:30 pm?”
“Is this the moment when people spend the most to watch a football match worldwide? ” Said the German coach, ” I’m not sure whether that’s the case. I’m not entirely sure.”
He went on to add, “To be honest, it’s just not possible for the people making those decisions to feel football.”
The logistics involved in returning athletes from South America are always planned ahead of time. To ensure that all of their players return together, teams usually work together to hire a private jet.
On the other hand, arranging games for the afternoon necessitates further preparation for their timely and feasible return. To ensure that they return to the same airport at the same time, this frequently requires extra work.
“There are thirty international players in both teams combined,” Klopp noted. The South American players are expected to return from Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia together on the same aircraft.
The Liverpool coach then said, “They’re all going back on the same plane for one match.”
