Jurgen Klopp is shocked by the fact that Brazil and Senegal have organized a friendly in Singapore during the international break which may mean an even longer trip than usual for Brazilian pair Roberto Firmino and Fabinho and Senegal striker Sadio Mane.
"That's another thing now – friends on the other side of the world," Klopp said. "We just got the message that Brazil will play Senegal in Singapore. And you think 'okay, that's obviously not a qualifier for any cup and stuff like this'. We're always talking about solutions [to player fatigue] but we have no influence on the problem.
“We only get the problems and then we try to find solutions for it. So for the players it stays intense. The good thing is that we are not the only club affected. The more international players you have the more you feel these problems obviously. It is exactly the same for most teams. Players fly all around the world then comeback and we collect the bones and go again. So that's how it is. "
