Liverpool are now victims of their own success, Jason McAteer has said.
Jason recently revealed that this is the case because of how the ability to name a settled side is responsible for the injury struggles at Anfield.
According to McAteer, because Klopp failing to rotate the squad has caught up with Liverpool, and with several competitions left to play in, things will only get more difficult.
He added that even if he understands that TV stations want the best teams and the most attractive football on their screens, this will not help Liverpool and their players.
His words, “Not rotating the squad catches up with everybody.
“The thing about Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool as a football club is sometimes, they’re a victim of their own success.
“If you’re at the top of the table and you win the Champions League, you’re going to be playing Champions League football again. You’re going to be playing a lot of high-intensity games.
“Your squad – if it’s that good – is going to be littered with international players, so they’re going to go away and play international football.
“As a result, you’re going to be playing a lot more games because you’re going to be in cup competitions for a lot longer, if you’re that good.
“I understand that TV stations want the best teams and the most attractive football on their screens, but that doesn’t necessarily help Liverpool and their players.
“Jurgen Klopp’s got a point when he says they play Champions League on a Wednesday night abroad, but then have to play at 12:00pm on a Saturday.
“The product [of the quality of live games] does need protection in that sense, otherwise we’re going to be watching the under-23s play because Liverpool will have no players fit for the starting XI and that’s across the board, not just for Liverpool.”
