Jürgen Klopp warns Sky Sports over plan to move Liverpool fixture

Jürgen Klopp warns Sky Sports over plan to move Liverpool fixture

The broadcaster, Sky, are yet to make a definite decision, but the game is expected to be played on Christmas Eve and Klopp has expressed his reservations about playing that day. There are offers for different players, sometimes people think about it and sometimes not.

Earlier this week, reports emerged that Sky Sports were keen to push the game - now scheduled for December 23 - back 24 hours for its "Super Sunday" programme, with the desire likely to be for kickoff to be at 4pm, GMT.

The five-time European Cup winners, however, stood their ground and while the Spanish giants launched multiple bids, they eventually opted against matching a €200m (£176m) valuation they claimed Liverpool had placed on the player. It's still Christmas for our families, but not for us. "Maybe we will play without the media - that would be nice, just one camera".

Klopp has had his complaints about fixture scheduling before after they were forced to play twice in less than 48 hours over the festive period.

The Premier League club were even forced to deny offering Coutinho to the Catalans on the last day of the window.

The BT Sport pundit told BetVictor: "I have fond memories of St James' Park and scored a hat-trick for Liverpool in the corresponding fixtures back in 1998".

"In this moment it would mean that we not only play on the 24th it would mean we play four games in nine days - probably the worst you can get". If other teams are flying, should we give up and say 'oh my god, I want to have a season ticket for Manchester United?'
