Jurgen Klopp has played down a comment he made about the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) last weekend, saying it was meant ironically.

I said: ‘There’s no international break anymore until March.’ And I said: ‘Oh, and there’s a little tournament in January.’ “And I didn’t mean a little tournament, just like you say it when there’s still a tournament.

On Saturday, Klopp seemed to express frustration with the timing of AFCON, at which Liverpool trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita are set to feature in the new year.

“It’s not even close to the idea in my mind that I want to talk about AFCON as a little tournament, or the continent of Africa like a little continent, not at all.

“I didn’t mean it like that.

Of the tournament, which runs from 9 January until 6 February, Klopp said: “I’ve heard that so often that there’s no international break until March.

In January, there’s a little tournament in Africa, I just want to say, and I think Asia is playing games, too.
