Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is obviously not sorry about the description of the UEFA Nations League as being “senseless”.

This is because he has stressed on why it should be scrapped by the organizers, noting that it is at the detriments of the players and club.

Klopp is of the opinion that players who have gone through stressful fixtures be allowed to rest so as to return fresh during international break instead of involving in more competitive games.

In his latest statement, the German stated that the UEFA Nations League is a good idea in itself but has no space in football because there are lots of competitions to compete for.

According to him, its important players are given the space to refresh so that the games can be enjoyed by the spectators, citing that no one will watch an underperforming game in the stadium.

He noted that other sports have reasons to rest during the summer break like the American football but that is not the case for the round leather game which usually affects the performance of the clubs.

Klopp said he has his opinion and he stands by what he holds of the competition despite the disagreement by national team coaches.
