Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has criticised the Premier League’s scheduling, using Tottenham’s kick-off times as an example.

Klopp spoke to BBC Sport after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, in which Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up an injury.

He suggested injuries will continue to happen if the Premier League does not sort out scheduling issues.

The German noted that Spurs having to play on a Sunday lunchtime after travelling to Bulgaria in the Europa League on Thursday is “a complete killer”.

  1. I must say I do like Klopp and his enthusiasm and always fair and objective views; his reaction to his sides 7-2 thumping at Villa a few weeks ago was a breath of fresh air.
    Germans with the initials JK(Klinsmann) are obviously the best.
    Such a shame he manages a club with such odious fans.

  2. Jürgen Klopp is one of those people you have to love even though he is seen by many as the enemy. He is honest and straightforward in everything he does and says and he has a great personality. I just wish that there were more like him. he brings a breath of fresh air to the Premier League.

  3. Its funny how now that Liverpool, Manchester City and United are complaining now everyone is listening. Spurs have had an terrible start to the season, playing Tuesday. Thursday and Sunday for two weeks
    and no one seemed to care

  4. He only said that as his excuse was he played on Wednesday and had to play Sunday and the retort would have been spurs played on Thursday and still played before you and won and never complained
