Jurgen Klopp commented on the current affairs surrounding Liverpool ahead of the match against Fulham where his team did not start the season in the desired way, drawing against the newly promoted team. The German coach commented on the state of his team's absentees for the start of the league. He also criticized the fact that the World Cup is being played in the middle of the season.

"We have many injuries, it is true, but we will not solve this problem with signings," said Klopp, who was without Diojo Jota, Curtis Jones, Kelleher, Konate, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Tsimikas for the match against Fulham. The one who has recovered in time for kick-off is Alisson. "Ali is fine," the German commented, hinting that he will be in goal at Craven Cottage.

Klopp showed a lot of respect for Saturday's opponents Fulham. "Fulham did very well last season. To go up playing so well is a very difficult thing to achieve in the Championship."

The German manager was asked about Guardiola's words that this year, with the World Cup in November, there will be two different seasons. Klopp was unhappy that the World Cup in Qatar will split the season.

Klopp spoke against the World Cup schedule

"The World Cup will be at a bad time. If you go to the World Cup final or third and fourth place, you're busy enough. Everyone knows the schedule is not right, but no one is talking enough about it. Something has to change. FIFA, UEFA, FA, they have to understand each other and take care of the players”.
