Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool coach, assured that he does not see “great benefits” in stopping the Premier League for several days, because when they return “the virus will continue there.”
Liverpool, which has all its players vaccinated and several already with the third dose, is one of the few teams that has not been affected by the postponements in the Premier, that has already suffered the suspension of nine games. Faced with the increase in covid cases in the league, coaches such as Thomas Frank, from Brentford, have called for the suspension of the Premier for a few days, to allow the players to recover.
“I do not see a great benefit in stopping the Premier, because when we return, everything will remain the same,” said Klopp after winning 3-1 at Newcastle.
“If the virus left, I would be the first to stop, go home and hope it was gone, but that is not going to be the case, so what is the real benefit of stopping?” Added the German. .
Liverpool, which announced this Thursday the positives of Virgil Van Dijk, Curtis Jones and Fabinho, hopes to be able to play this Sunday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur in London. The ‘Spurs’ have seen their last three games postponed, two in the Premier and one in the Conference League.
