Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he will not be making any of the senior squad available for the FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury Town at Anfield.
On top of that, he has also confirmed that he will not be taking charge of the game – that responsibility will fall to U23s boss Neil Critchley.
There has been some backlash for this, but Klopp is free to manage his team as he sees fit, and as no senior players will be in the team, why not let the man who knows them best take the reigns?
But Shrewsbury boss Sam Ricketts can understand why the Liverpool manager has made his choices – take a look at what he said here (via talkSport):
"This was our cup final today, and we'll have another one at Anfield." 🏆
"For Liverpool, it's just another day to be honest."
