Klopp is against EPL suspension

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp spoke about possible quarantine in the Premier League for several weeks.

Despite the precautions and general vigilance in football, in England a second wave of infection has begun within some teams. Initially, Manchester City players had problems having tested positive for COVID-19, which led to the postponement of the match with Everton. After that, Fulham had problems. The games of the Cottagers with Tottenham and Burnley will also be played later.

Given the precedent, discussions regarding the possibility of closing the league for a couple of weeks in order to minimize the risk of outbreaks have begun in England. Therefore, Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp gave his assessment of this situation,

“I am not a doctor, but I think we must do our best to keep the tournament going. We knew there would be a second wave in the winter. On top of that, it was Christmas when people find it harder to isolate themselves. So the growth in numbers is understandable.

I think we can continue to play, but I respect the specialists, and I also respect any decisions that will be made in the next few weeks” Sky Sports quotes the manager.

Stopping the championship now could be beneficial for Liverpool. Due to the huge number of injuries and the inconsistent squad, the team is in decline. The Reds are no longer the sole leaders, as Manchester United have come close to them. Out of the last six matches in all tournaments, the Merseysiders have won only two, hawing drawn four times.

On the other hand, stopping the championship can lead to big risks that appeared after the spring lockdown. This includes an increase in muscle injuries. But we will still think that a two-week vacation will benefit all the players, because they have been playing at a frenzied pace since summer due to the calendar, which also included the matches of the national teams.
