Liverpool is unhappy with the fixture load!
In the pre-game press conference; Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp expressed that “The situation should not be like this and we can discuss this every year;” He further added that “It’s tradition and we want to play on Boxing Day, we could have played on Boxing Day and that would have been no problem at all.” Later he said “But playing on the 26th and the 28th is just not right, I just say that because it’s true and I think we can find solutions for that”; and that It’s not that difficult to play football in a slightly different way. The 26th and the 29th, where’s the problem?”
Later the manager expressed that fixtures need to ease out as; “It would just help the players, even without Covid, and the problem is now some teams definitely have a proper Covid problem at the moment and you rush a smaller group of players through two games.”
