‘These people don’t feel football!’ Jurgen Klopp blasts Premier League for scheduling of Manchester City clash
The Reds comfortably beat Brentford 3-0 at Anfield on Sunday, meaning they enter the international break in second.
Liverpool take on City at the Etihad on Saturday 25th November at 12:30pm, in what is the first fixture back after the break.
Both teams have vast numbers of international players, and could have around 30 players involved over the international break.
The likes of Ederson, Alisson, Luis Diaz and Julian Alvarez will all represent their countries, and face gruelling trips home from South America.
And Klopp says the scheduling shows that the Premier League ‘don’t feel football’.
‘How can you put the Man City game on at 12.30? These people don’t feel football,’ said Klopp.
‘There could’ve been a moment when these two teams have 30 international players, we pick up the South Americans on one plane to arrive here.’
