An All Star Game in the Premier League? Klopp takes out the su

Chelsea owner Boehly has sparked a big discussion with the proposal for a Premier League All-Star Game

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has thrown cold water on the idea of ​​a Premier League All Star Game after Chelsea owner Todd Boehly proposed the idea.

The Blues’ new owner floated the idea while attending a conference in the United States, where he expressed his desire to see English football follow in America’s sporting footsteps.

Boehly specifically mentioned the potential for a relegation play-off as well as the introduction of an all-star game, where the Premier League would be split into two halves, north and south, for an annual game.

Klopp, however, is not a fan of the proposal, pointing out that teams are already stretched by a busy schedule and the end-of-season period is not as extensive as those in America.

“He doesn’t hesitate, he doesn’t wait long! Great. When he finds a date for that, he can call me,” he said after the Champions League win over Ajax.

“He forgets that in big sports in America, those sports have four-month breaks, so they’re happy to be able to do some sport during those breaks. It’s completely different in football.

“Does he also want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters and play them on a football team? I’m surprised at the question, so please don’t judge my answers too much, but maybe he can help me. explain at some point.”
