Freshly crowned world champions Liverpool don’t have an French players in their team, and this is something I previously hadn’t noticed, but an interview with Jurgen Klopp by Canal+ has brought it to the front of my mind.
The boss sat down with one of their reporters and had a chat about all things Liverpool, but the absence of a Frenchman in the squad did come up. Klopp said there is not reason for this, and joked French players are “too expensive”.
Take a watch of the video below:
