Liverpool boss has spoken about his concerns over the participation of his players in International break as the COVID protocols are unclear.

Liverpool

will face

Manchester City

in their big Premier League clash on Sunday before players leave their clubs to play for their National Teams. As Covid-19 has spread faster during the recent weeks forcing the English government to another Lockdown, Klopp has spoken about his worries over the unclear FIFA protocols and the lack of power for the clubs to control the situation.

"I am concerned in the moment with all these kinds of things," Klopp told reporters.

"For us, it feels safer when we are all together even though we had some cases as well, not too many but some, and none for a while, which is good, but this is the time we are living in.

"The problem with that situation is we have no power. Not really. We try to find out how the protocols are with all the different FAs but it's up to the FA to answer or not, so FIFA is not really involved in that.

"That would be a massive help if you don't get a reply from an FA, for example, then we don't send a player.

"That would be great because you would 100 per cent get a reply then. And then you would know that all the protocols are fine."

After the upcoming International break, teams will continue their tight schedule as Liverpool must play against

Leicester City

on November 21 before taking part in 11 more games until the end of the year.
