“I don’t want to sound disrespectful about how other countries are doing, but this is the place we know and we know how we’re dealing with it,” Klopp said.
“So I’m a bit worried because it’s difficult to be in contact with all the federations (football associations) around the world.
“I get it, I really understand how difficult the situation is, but the information that we get from certain AFs is not exactly perfect.
“As a football club you are pretty lonely right now, we send the players and then we have another challenge because we have to play a Premier League game on a Saturday after they have traveled from, maybe Peru, on Thursday or Friday. .
“You have to make sure you get the players home in the fastest and safest way and then we have to see how they are doing before trying to get a result on Saturday.
