Jurgen Klopp Liverpool TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp has once again expressed his annoyance at the UEFA Nations League, stating that the repetitive nature of the competition will grow tiresome.

Liverpool face Huddersfield on Saturday evening and the Red’s boss is unhappy at the extra competitive workload that the UEFA Nations League brings.

Klopp’s men are currently struggling with injury’s, James Milner and Naby Keita are already out and could be joined by colossal defender Virgil Van Dijk, who was injured in the UEFA Nations League game between Holland and Germany.

“I like competition but at one point somebody has to step back and think they are players, how can we make sure they perform?” Klopp told reporters

Liverpool have quite a large European contingent among their squad, including the likes of Joe Gomez, Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum who all risk injury through excessive game-time.

The German mastermind once again commented on the repetitive concept the tournament brings:

“You don’t want to see Anthony Joshua fighting every other night. At one point we have to think do we want opera every night, or every two months?”
