This is indeed a serious proposal from Todd Boehly, who has already raised the subject with his counterparts in the championship. But it was at a press conference that Jürgen Klopp learned the information. And the manager of Liverpool let go. » He didn’t wait longreacted the German. When he finds a date for that, call me. He forgets that in American sports, players have four-month breaks, so they are very happy to be able to do some sport during these breaks. It’s completely different in football. Does he also want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters? »
Klopp doesn’t see the point
» I’m surprised by the question, so please don’t judge my answers too much, but maybe he can explain it to me at some point and find a suitable date. I’m not sure people want to see that. Imagine that, Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle all in one team which is not the national team, just a northern team. Interesting game. All the guys from London together. Arsenal, Tottenham. Great. He really said that? Interesting “, quipped Jürgen Klopp, not tender with his new opponent.
