FC Liverpool - Jürgen Klopp scolds over Fa-Cup

The FC Liverpool must travel for its Fa Cup semi-final game against Manchester City to London. This brings Reds coach Jürgen Klopp to the palm tree.

"It's one of the most ridiculous stories I've ever heard," Klopp said to the decision of the English Association, the Fa Cup semi-final part between Liverpool and the Citizens on April 16 at the London Wembley Stadium.

But not the journey in itself annoys the 54-year-old. The problem is that the English capital will be unavailable at this time by train from Liverpool and Manchester due to construction work. The FA has therefore organized 200 buses to make the fans still participate in the spectacle.

The association should already have known from the construction work on the train route. "I've heard that the Fa has been working from the work for 18 months and I'm not sure what you thought of? That no club will be from the northwest part of the semi-finals?" Klopp raved.

The BUS plan of the association can win the Reds coach little. Much more would take the arrival even longer. "How long do you usually need, four and a half hours to London? It will probably be twelve when the fans of both sides come out of the same direction. It makes absolutely no sense."

Instead, the FA should have chosen another time from the outset. "I'm just not happy that it was made so complicated. It should be easier to see his football team in a semi-final," clipped Klopp.
