The Premier League has traditionally been known for not having any kind of winter break at all and this year will not be any different as clubs in the top tier England league are going to be competing against each other during the time when the majority of other leagues are going to be taking a break.
Liverpool’s JurgenKlopp is not happy about the agenda that his team has in December as they will be competing on New Year’s Eve on December 31st against Manchester City and then only 2 days later, another league match is scheduled to take place against Sunderland.
‘’Now I have seen the fixtures and I am not too happy. We have less than 48 hours between our game against Man City on December 31 and playing in Sunderland on the 2nd.Forty-eight hours is an interesting idea but less than 48 hours I cannot believe’’
‘’I would never say Boxing Day is not a good idea as I love it and I have absolutely no problem but now having a match day with two days between there should be another possibility. I don’t know why we play Monday. Is January 2 a special day in England? Forty-eight hours between two games, how does this work? And then you will sit there and say: ‘You didn’t perform too well, how did this happen?’ or ‘Injuries. Oh? ’’JurgenKlopp said as he expressed his disgust in having to compete in such a short lapse of time and especially in a festive period.
La Liga and Serie A are a few of the other top European leagues and both of them will have a 2 week long rest where none of the clubs that are competing in those leagues do not have any scheduled matches starting from December 24 until January 7 but clubs on the Premier League on the other hand do have to compete in that period of time.
