Liverpool Manager Klopp Cries Out

Jurgen Klopp says “we cannot carry on like this” after it was decided his Liverpool side will play two games in two days in December.
The Reds face Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on 17 December before playing the Club World Cup semi-final in Qatar the next day.
“We have to find solutions,” said Klopp. “The problems are obvious.
“Every year we do the same again. Some find it funny – ‘five games in three days – let’s see how it works out’.”
From 23 November to 2 January, Liverpool face a testing period of 12 games in 37 days across three competitions – the Premier League, Champions League and Club World Cup – with an FA Cup third-round tie still to be determined in the first week of 2020.
Last Friday, Klopp had ruled out the possibility of fielding two different Liverpool sides in two competitions in two continents, but a club statement on Tuesday said although it was “not an ideal scenario” the outcome was reached in the “best interests of the competition”.
