Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has vowed to withdraw Liverpool players from the forthcoming international break if there is a chance they will have to quarantine on their return under coronavirus rules.
Klopp made this known on Wednesday during a brief chat with journalists.
Recall that FIFA has given clubs dispensation to prevent players who may be affected by the regulations from joining up with their countries for the matches, which include World Cup qualifiers.
However, Klopp said: “I think all the clubs agree that with the same problems we cannot just let the boys go and then 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 needs of the different FAs (football associations) but this is a time where we cannot make everyone happy and we have to admit the players are paid by the clubs so it means we have to be first priority.”
