Jurgen Klopp believes that there is no benefit in stopping the Premier League due to a number of clubs being affected by a number of Covid cases. There have been calls of a winter break being brought forward with very little room for postponements in the calendar. Premier League clubs are set to meet on Monday in regard to the current coronavirus cases.
“Stopping the league is probably not the right thing but with the schedule, we have to be more flexible,” Jurgen Klopp said talking about stopping the Premier League due to the spike in coronavirus cases. “So far football kept it pretty much outside with the testing regimes, the massive disciplinary things for the boys did really well, but this time it is really difficult. I don’t see the massive benefit of it [stopping the Premier League] because we come back [and] it is still the same. If the virus will be gone then I am the first that stops and goes home and waits until it is gone. But that is probably not the case, so where’s the real benefit of it? We hope we can play and Tottenham can play on Sunday.”
“My message around this has always been simple and clear, I hope: I trust experts. I follow the advice of smart, educated people who know their field because they’ve dedicated their lives to it and have studied it,” he added. We are clearly moving back to stricter measures around the team environment and at LFC we are absolutely OK with that.”
