Jurgen Klopp balks at All-Star game suggestion

Credit: UEFA 2022 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was less-than-impressed with Chelsea’s new American owner Todd Boehly’s suggestion earlier in the day that the Premier League should introduce a US-style All-Star game between teams in the north and south of England. “He doesn’t wait long. When he finds a date for that he can call me,” he added. “In American sports these players have four-month breaks. Does he want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters as well? “Maybe he can explain that. I’m not sure people want to see that – United players, Liverpool players, City players, Everton players all together. It is not the national team. Did he really say it?”
