European football: Klopp unwittingly faults EPL

Merseyside outfit Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has faulted the English Premier League for not giving the needed support to their clubs in European competition.

So far, Tottenham and Liverpool are in the Champions League semi-finals while Arsenal and Chelsea are in the Europa League with Jurgen Klopp claiming that they should be helped by the EPL on fixtures so that they can be able to perform better in those competitions.

The German international made this claim when making reference to Ajax who were given a break from their domestic league to help them better prepare for the Champions League.

He noted that he is unsure if the English Premier League will be able to take such a decision to help their team but stressed that it is the best that would have happened to his team and the others.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss is hoping that his team can be able to deliver a double this season with his attention on the English Premier League and the Champions League as well.

However, the English teams have been hailed for their performance in the European tournaments this season as they can still boast of two teams in each of the European tournaments.
