🇩🇪 Klopp says isolation rule should stop players from going on international duty

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has viewed player isolation after the FIFA break as senseless.

To meet Coronavirus safety measures, FIFA recently suggested players will honour international call ups next week, before entering 10-day isolation upon returning to club duties.

"I think all the clubs agree that with the same problems we cannot just let the boys go and then sort the situation when they come back by placing our players in a 10-day quarantine in a hotel, it is just not possible," Klopp said.

"I understand the needs of the different FAs but this is a time where we cannot make everyone happy and we have to admit the players are paid by the clubs so it means we have to be first priority.

"We cannot make everybody happy at the same time in this period of our lives. We are not 100% sure because it is not clear because some countries might change the venues that they are playing in,” the German concluded.

Meanwhile, Klopp is focused on league football as Chelsea visit Anfield on Thursday night.
