Jurgen Klopp Angry At England For Playing Jordan Henderson Against Lithuania

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has criticised Gareth Southgate’s use of Jordan Henderson during the international break and claimed it made “no sense” to play the Liverpool captain against Lithuania.

Jordan Henderson played the entirety of England’s World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia and Lithuania, much to the anger of Jurgen Klopp , who believes the midfielder’s recent injury problems should have seen him rested

“England played a friendly game on an artificial surface – it was a qualification game but they had already qualified – and I was not happy that Hendo was on the pitch to be honest with all the problems he’s had in the past,” Klopp said. “It made no sense. We [club managers] cannot be involved in this. They [international managers] all make their own decisions.

Sometimes I really wish we could have had more time to make preparations for such an important game. But is our job and the same for the other team so let’s go.”

Klopp will be without the influential Sadio Mané against United, and for the next six weeks, after the Senegal striker suffered a hamstring injury on international duty.

“Obviously we can still play football without Sadio as we have had to do this in the past – much more than we would have wanted,” the manager said. “He is the highest-quality player and has been very unlucky with injury.

A lot of players in this international break from different teams had injuries – it is a big problem with change of training and a different rhythm. That is always a problem and you hope nothing will happen. On this occasion it was Sadio but no one else thankfully. We can play without him even if we would love to have him in the lineup.”
