Jurgen Klopp bans his players from international duty

Jurgen Klopp would be the first of many managers banning their players from traveling.

The Reds boss has halted his players from traveling with their nations.

If any of the players are required to quarantine for 10 days, they won’t be allowed to play in the World Cup qualifying games.

“I think everyone agrees we cannot let the players go and play for their country and come back and quarantine for 10 days in a hotel, that is not how we can do it,” Klopp explained.

“FIFA was kind of clear that we don’t have to let the players go this time, and I think all the clubs agree that with the same problems we cannot just let the boys go,” he said.

“We can’t just wait to sort the situation when they come back by placing our players in a 10-day quarantine in a hotel, it is just not possible.”

“I understand the need of the different FAs, but we have to admit the players are paid by the clubs so it means we have to be first priority,” Klopp added.

“This is a time where we cannot make everyone happy. We are not 100 per cent sure as some countries may decide to change the venues they play, and go to non-red zone countries.

“The whole situation is similar to the Champions League in terms of where we play and you have to wait until the last second. We cannot be influential in it. We just deal with what other people decided.”
