Former Arsenal striker, Kevin Campbell has hit out at Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp for his complaints about the Premier League schedule.
Campbell branded Klopp’s demands as ‘nonsense’, adding that the German is a master of diverting pressure.
Klopp has consistently complained about UEFA and the Premier League’s scheduling.
The Reds boss once again took a dig at the governing bodies as they faced Southampton just three days after their FA Cup final victory over Chelsea, which went all the way to penalties.
In his pre-match conference before Liverpool’s Tuesday’s Premier League win over Southampton, Klopp complained about the fixture schedule, stating that the match should have been played on Thursday.
But Campbell did not think that Klopp’s complaint was justified.
Speaking on the issue, Campbell told Football Insider: “Hold on a minute. They played Saturday and then Tuesday. That happens all of the time.
“That is what happens in the Champions League and you have to include travel with that.”
He added, “I don’t want to hear this nonsense from Klopp. The fact of the matter is, if the FA Cup final got done in 90 minutes, Klopp still would have complained. Nobody can predict that it is going to go to extra time. It is just the way the game pans out.”
“Jurgen Klopp is a master of diverting the pressure. It is a good move, but I see right through it. Come on now. These fixtures have to be put in place. This is what happens when you are competing on all fronts until the end of the season.”
