- Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Gary Neville always has a say in everything
- The Man United legend suggested the EPL should not resume in June but in July
- Neville also pointed out that players might be at risk during the pandemic
Jurgen Klopp has joked that the only thing he has learnt during lockdown is that Man United legend Gary Neville "has an opinion on absolutely everything".
The former Red Devils' defender has been among those against the Premier League season resuming in June amid safety concern of players.
Neville suggested the resumption should be put back until July, a time that would delay Liverpool's title win.
And Klopp has come out to speak against Neville's claims jokingly at the Sky Sports pundit during an appearance on BBC's Football Focus.
"I didn't learn a lot during lockdown except Gary Neville has an opinion on absolutely everything!" the German joked. "It's incredible! So no, I didn't learn a lot but I have known myself for 52 years.
"I know I can deal with difficult situations before and this is a difficult situation not only for me and my family but for everybody on this planet.
"I am quite proud of how we as a society are dealing with it. We as human beings are not perfect so we make mistakes but I think we have understood a lot more of how we are all connected to each other. That is something good."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Premier League players will reportedly tell their clubs that they do not intend to return to training on Monday, May 18, 2020.
Reports from Sportmail claim players have had conversations with each other and told their managers about resuming in the coming week.
A video conference meeting will be with be held between top English teams in the next few days in a bid to assure players about their safety.
Players will also have the opportunity to talk about their health concerns amid the global pandemic in the meeting before they accept their May 18, training resumption.
Legit.ng also reported that Angel Gomes is reportedly going to leave Man United after the club refused to agree a £30,000-per-week new deal.
It is understood that Premier League rivals Chelsea are on standby for the attacking midfielder if he leaves Old Trafford as a free agent in the summer.
But United are keen to keep the 19-year-old academy graduate whom they believe would yield to their new terms.
