Pep Guardiola says he, like Jurgen Klopp, is against the idea of the Chelsea owner to hold a match between the biggest stars of the Premier League.
According to “Sports Three”, Todd Boley, the owner of the Chelsea club, presented an idea at the conference in New York City, which has been opposed by several coaches of the Premier League teams. Boley called for a match between the Premier League’s biggest stars during the season. His idea is something like the All-Star Game in the American Basketball League.
The first coach who reacted negatively to this proposal was Jurgen Klopp. The Liverpool manager pointed out that despite the very busy football calendar in England, there is no reason to add more matches to this calendar.
Todd Boley believes that holding an All-Star match between the South Stars and the North Stars of England could have significant marketing benefits for the clubs.
Pep Guardiola, the head coach of Manchester City, today announced his agreement with Klopp’s words and said: “I have no opinion about this myself.” not at all. But I agree with Jurgen. It is not clear when this game will be held. Give us a date to see!”
Guardiola made these comments in the press conference before tomorrow’s match between Manchester City and Wolves. In the past, along with Jurgen Klopp, he had protested against the busy football calendar in England.
