Jürgen says NO to a circuit-breaker shutdown (which would break no CoVid circuits, btw).https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/jan/01/jurgen-klopp-urges-premier-league-to-avoid-covid-19-circuit-breaker-shutdown
Some of his comments from the article:
Jürgen Klopp believes the Premier League should avoid implementing a “circuit-breaker” shutdown designed to control the rising number of Covid-19 cases at clubs if at all possible.
“I think the competition can go on,” said Liverpool’s manager, presumably mindful of the severe fixture congestion which would be an inevitable consequence of such a suspension. “And it’s also important it goes on. People want to watch it and, in this case, we are not part of society.
“We go to the training ground and stuff like that but usually we isolate. We try to do everything to keep the boys as safe as possible so I think we really can carry on. We all try to do our best to keep the competition going. I think it works well for everybody but I’m not a [medical] specialist and I will respect all the decisions made in the next few weeks.”
The realist in Klopp always expected an increase in coronavirus within clubs at this time of year. “We knew before the winter there would probably be a second wave,” he said. “It’s a challenge when it is about self-isolation so I am not surprised that the numbers have gone up slightly in football.”
