Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admitted he was "really angry" over the scheduling of the upcoming Premier League season with the impact of the World Cup on player welfare.

This World Cup happens at the wrong moment for the wrong reasons."

Speaking at Friday’s press conference ahead of his side’s opening day Premier League trip to Fulham, Klopp said: "If all the players then have a break it is not a problem, it is good.

A furious Klopp claimed that the tournament was at the "wrong moment for the wrong reasons" and once again highlighted the player welfare issues that could be caused by the scheduling.

This weekend’s opening Premier League weekend will be the first of 16 matchdays to be staged before the league takes a break on 12 November – with the World Cup kicking off six days later – before returning on Boxing Day, a little over a week after the conclusion of the tournament in Qatar.

When I start talking about it, I get really angry."

It is the first time in the World Cup's 92-year history that the competition is being staged in the middle of the European domestic season and ensures that the Premier League – alongside other major leagues across the globe – are being paused for six weeks after the opening three months of the campaign.
