Jurgen Klopp: No First-Team Players In FA Cup Replay 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Jan 27, 2020 5:52 pm

Jurgen Klopp said that no first-team players will play against Shrewsbury Town in a FA Cup fourth round replay next month.

Klopp added that U23s manager Neil Critchley would manage against Shrewbury. 

Critchley was the manager for Liverpool\'s loss to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last month.

Klopp has previously stated that he feels cup replays should be scrapped.

\"It\'s about players\' welfare and they need a rest -- mental rest, physical rest. That\'s what the winter break is about and then another competition tells us it\'s not that important. We had to make these decisions before because the boys have family and the international players like Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Georginio Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, all these guys they never have time off.\"
