Liverpool (AP) – Jürgen Klopp is concerned about the Liverpool FC national team for upcoming international travel during the coronavirus pandemic.
The 53-year-old coach of the England champions stressed that it is difficult to keep in touch with football associations around the world. “I really don’t want to sound disrespectful,” said Klopp. “But just like everyone wants their family around right now, and if your daughter or son says they want to go there or there, you say, I’m not sure it’s the right time.”
So be it with the footballers. “I’m not saying it’s the safest place in the world (here). But it’s the place we know at least,” Klopp said at the press conference about the Premier League game against Aston Villa. He understands the concerns of the national associations, UEFA and FIFA 100 percent and he also knows how difficult the situation is. As a club you are almost alone. He also criticized the fact that there was little time left for the returnees to play. The Premier League and the TV stations don’t care, Klopp said.
