Klopp: I am still waiting for the first advantage of Brexit

Liverpool boss has criticized Brexit after new transfer restrictions are unveiled.

The British government has unveiled new restrictions for English clubs regarding the transfer market and also noted that if it was not for the club’s already bad situation these restrictions would be heavier. The English clubs won’t be able to sign foreign players unless they are 18 or more than three overseas players under the age of 21 in a single transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp

who has been criticizing Brexit for a long time has once again spoken out against the decision and its bad effect on British football. 

“[Liverpool sporting director] Michael Edwards was involved in a lot of these discussions and the clubs fought pretty hard for a solution – kind of a good solution or as good as possible,” the Guardian quotes the German as saying.

“Without the discussions it would have been worse. I am still waiting for the first advantage of Brexit that someone can tell me. What really improves after Brexit?

“It’s obviously not my thing to judge, but as an interested person I just wait until the first really positive impact of Brexit. Maybe I didn’t read it because I’m too much in football, but I don’t remember a lot, to be honest.

“People – the FA or whoever – want to make sure that the clubs don’t sign too many players from other countries because they are afraid that not enough English talents will make their way,” he added.

“But if you look at the English youth national teams at the moment they are in the top two or three – if not the top – in nearly all age groups; talent-wise they are 100%, and that is with the way we did it before.

“So let’s think about why that happened. They had a lot of players around them that played good football as well. It’s helpful. We cannot just create more talents because we deny other talents.

“But, as I say, it’s not my thing to judge. It’s just one of the smaller problems which we will all be aware of when Brexit is finally there.”
