Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly Boehly has been getting the sticks for some of his comments lately.

Boehly had brought up the idea of a north vs south Premier League All-Star game during the off-season, as is done in the MLB, NFL and NBA.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp laughed off the suggestion as he responded: “He doesn’t hesitate, he doesn’t wait long!

“Great. When he finds a date for that he can call me. He forgets that in the big sports in America, these sports have four-month breaks so they’re quite happy they can do a little bit of sport in these breaks. It’s completely different in football.

“Does he want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters as well and let them play a football team?

“I’m surprised by the question so please don’t judge my answers too much, but maybe he can explain it to me at one point.”

Pep Guardiola has revealed he agrees with rival manager Jurgen Klopp on Chelsea owner Todd Boehly’s idea for a North vs South match.

“I don’t have an opinion,” Guardiola said when first asked about the Blues chairman’s idea.

He continued: “I agree with Jurgen, so, if they give me the dates when this should be played it would be nice.”
