iverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he and his players do not need an apology from John W Henry.
Klopp is asked if he and his players have received a personal apology from Henry or the board. He says “no” and he doesn’t “think it is necessary”.
Klopp said: “I was mentioned in the apology and so was the team. That was personal enough for me.
“I know it’s normal that people will say ‘how can we carry on’ but that doesn’t get sorted in a week. As a team we have to concentrate on the things we do such as football. That’s what we do.
“You can’t just introduce always more competitions. Very good that the new Super League is off the table, but the new Champions League is not great. Uefa showed me the idea and I said I don’t like it – 10 games rather than six. No idea where to put them in.
“I’m not surprised how the players dealt with it. They are grown ups. It was very good what they did, say their opinion, it’s not the first time they have done it and it won’t be the last.”
“The only people who never get asked are the coaches, the players and the supporters. Uefa didn’t ask us, the Super League didn’t ask us. It’s just always ‘play more games’ – that’s not possible.
“The most positive thing is that it didn’t happen.”
