Klopp suggests ‘criminal’ fixture list behind Liverpool title collapse

Jurgen Klopp has criticised the ‘insane’ fixture list for his ‘over-worked’ Liverpool side and other Premier League teams, calling it a ‘crime’.

Liverpool host Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend as the Reds look to bounce back from a disappointing run of form. The Merseysiders have seen their Premier League title hopes all but ended after a run of one win in five league games.


Exits in the FA Cup and Europa League have also contributed to a decline during the run-in and Klopp was again critical of the congested fixture schedule.

“It’s a general problem. Nothing to do with our schedule now, our schedule is right. We will see,” the German said at his pre-match press conference.

“They dare to give Thursday, Sunday, not to change because of Europe. [Then it’s] Thursday Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday [at] 12:30. It’s a crime.

“I was actually waiting for Amnesty International to get to them.

“In the whole world we have the quickest turnaround between games. That is absolutely insane but they are still happy and subscribers, you can take me off that list,” Klopp continued.

“The boys had a couple of days off which is super important and we could have proper training sessions again which we are pretty much not used to anymore. Usually we stumble from one into the next and then we play again.

“Training helps good coaches, good managers, good footballers massively, you can see that.

“In general I think it’s a really interesting subject. Seeing that Aston Villa lost 4-2 last night for example would mean if they go out no English team will be in any kind of European final.


“I watch a lot of football. The Premier League is the best league in the world so it’s not overrated, the players are over-worked.”
