Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp criticized the Premier League schedule 201-2020. He claimed not to understand why the Premier League was rolling too fast.
The Reds brand new season begins on Sunday (08/04/2019), when serving Manchester City in the Community Shield event. After the match, Liverpool started their adventure in the Premier League against Norwich City on Friday (08/09/2019).
Liverpool cannot relax for long. Five days later the Reds faced Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup, on August 14.
The Premier League and Ligue 1 are the earliest leagues to roll. The German Bundesliga starts kickoff on August 16, La Liga on August 17, and Serie A a week later.
"I don't know why we started so early," said Klopp, who next season accompanied seven events, namely the Community Shield, UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup, Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
This summer some Liverpool players are also busy playing in the international arena with their respective national teams.
Sadio Mane strengthened Senegal which won the frica Cup of Nations on July 19, while Allison won the Copa America 2019 with the Brazilian national team on July 7. The situation clearly makes Jurgen Klopp want the competition holiday period to last longer, so that players have enough rest.
As a result, some Liverpool players have very short breaks.
"I spoke with Carlo Ancelotti (Napoli manager). Italy has 20 teams, just like the Premier League and Serie A just starting on August 24, "Klopp said.
"Kalidou Koulibaly played with Sadio in the African Cup of Nations. He has a four-week vacation and he's not back soon, "complained Klopp.
"I don't know why we started so fast. Outstanding Premier League products. So this schedule doesn't make sense, "Klopp added.
