Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he would happily sacrifice prize money for reaching the Champions League final if it meant Uefa scrapped their “ridiculous” Nations League tournament.

“I said I would prefer Uefa took more money from Champions League and kick out the Nations League again.

And we continue with Nations League games with the national teams.

“I said as well in this conversation, the reason why I’m not in such a good mood when I speak about Uefa is the Nations League – I still think it is one of the most ridiculous ideas in the world of football.

“We now finish a season where players play more than 70 games easily: club games 63/64 plus international stuff which takes (some of) them to 75, which is really mad.

Ceferin contacted Klopp this week to address his concerns about the limited number of tickets the club received (19,600 in a 75,000 capacity Stade de France) for the final against Real Madrid later this month and received a surprising suggestion from the Reds boss.

The Liverpool boss has long been an opponent of the tournament, which he feels adds unnecessary, extra matches into an already-congested calendar, but he had the opportunity to send his thoughts to Uefa president Aleksandar Ceferin.
