Premier League: 2019 winter break for Jürgen Klopp and Co.
Not only Jürgen Klopp is relieved, but the entire Premier League. From the season 2019/2020 on there is also a winter break in the Premier League. This is possible because the association is ready to break with a tradition. The fifth round of the FA Cup will be held without replay (previously in a draw) for the first time during the week. The 20 Premier League clubs should not pause at the same time, so that each weekend five games can take place. The long-term goal is more recovery for the pros before the European Championship 2020 (including England) – and for future World Championships. So there is more time for sunbathing for Jürgen Klopp!
The former coach of Borussia Dortmund and current head coach at Liverpool recently indulged in palm trees for a few days. After the 5-0 victory in the Champions League at FC Porto Jürgen Klopp flew with his professionals from Liverpool not back to England. Instead, they stayed for a four-day short training camp in Marbella / Spain. This “short holiday” was possible because Liverpool is no longer represented in the FA Cup. The Coach: “The decisive phase of the season is approaching us and I think we will all benefit from these days here under these excellent conditions.” That means probably a FC Liverpool in top form.

First, the Gunners lost in the FA Cup and a few days later in the Premier League against Manchester City.
