English Premier League outfit Liverpool are the only club that have been singled out from attack by UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin after most Champions League.

While they were called out for a meeting to discuss on the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) most of the club’s managers failed to be in attendance and that was not a fair one to UEFA president.

The defaulters include Pep Guardiola, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mauricio Pochettino as part of the 11 from the EPL that were not in attendance in Frankfurt on Monday.

Although Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was not in attendance as well, but his side were excused because of their Premier League game against West Ham on Monday which he needed to attend to.

According to UEFA president Ceferin, all the club coaches that refused to show up lack respect as he only had managers from Juventus, Lyon. Paris Saint Germain, AS Roma and Schalke in attendance.

He stressed that the meeting was more important to coaches as they are the ones who complain the most about officiating in games.

However, it is not clear if a major decision was able to be reached with the absence of the coaches.
