Gary Neville

, Former Manchester United believes that Klopp is playing a mind game in order to have some advantages in his favor.

Neville said:

"I don't think Jurgen Klopp's got a point around fatigue, around the length of time of pre-season or about the Saturday kick-offs.

"My view is that when you become a winning manager, and this is where Sir Alex got to and why they called him a whinging so-and-so for many years, the best managers they just want to win.

"The biggest risk to Klopp winning the league again this season is another big injury or two.

"So, he wants to try and gain that advantage to put some psychological thing into people's minds. Sir Alex Ferguson did it for 15 or 16 years.

"He's trying to gain an advantage to get results, that's it.

"I played for a manager in Sir Alex Ferguson. Every single season he wanted that advantage. He wanted the ability to recover more, to play at different times, so it suited Manchester United, and that's what Klopp wants now."
