Klopp: UEFA Nations League is one of the most ridiculous ideas

Fri 13 May 2022 | 18:14

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the UEFA Nations League is one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world of football.

Klopp recently criticized UEFA for allocating only 20,000 tickets to

Liverpool

and

Real Madrid

fans for the Champions League final.

Ahead of the FA Cup final with Chelsea on Saturday, Klopp revealed UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has contacted him to explain the UEFA ticketing system.

"We didn't speak, he texted me. I obviously said that there should be more tickets for supporters and then I think the same explanation [he gave me] he gave publicly,"

Klopp told reporters.

"What is it? 93 percent of the Champions League money goes to the clubs and UEFA only gets a few euros, I replied and said 'okay, this is one of those situations where you should have more information before you give answers' but I cannot constantly be prepared for these kinds of things, but I still have an opinion.

"So it's fine, I will try to clarify that here that obviously, I didn't know enough about it. But I said as well in this conversation, I have said now that he spoke to me, that the reason I am not in such a good mood when I speak about UEFA is because of the

Nations League

.

"I still think it is one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world of football because now we finish a season where [some] players have played more than 70 games, easily – club games 63 or 64, plus internationals – and then go direct to 75, which is pretty mad.

"We continue with Nations League games because we have to play them [when] there is no tournament, who cares we play four, five or six games with the national teams.

"So that is the reason because I would prefer UEFA take more money from the Champions League final and kick out the Nations League again. That would be my preferred solution and more tickets for the people anyway.

"That is my personal opinion. I read about it but maybe I don't have all the information, but it is still my opinion."
