Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has bemoaned the number of fixtures his side will participate in as he looks to navigate his club through seven competitions this season.
It will be a grueling season for Liverpool whose Champions League triumph this season will see them participate in the FIFA Club World Cup in December and according to Klopp, their situation was unacceptable.
“We sit here and it sounds like I am having a moan or whatever. It is just the situation, in the long-term, is not acceptable.
“It looks like nobody can imagine a week without football in the year. When did that happen? A game again, a game again.
“It is difficult, difficult for the boys. Everything will be fine this season. But in the long-term? We have to change it. There must be breaks. Come on, let them go. Be brave. Don’t treat every game like it is the last of a decade.”
Klopp argued that in participating in the FIFA World Club championships, to be held in Qatar, there is potential for mid-season chaos. And that their situation should see Premier League and potential domestic cup ties rearranged.
