Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes too much demand is placed on worldwide stars who have had barely any rest following the World Cup.
It's a very controversial idea - especially when Liverpool reached the Champions League final last season experiencing some magical moments on the way to Kiev.
The 26-year-old returned to Merseyside to kick off the new campaign with a goal in the demolition of West Ham. How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

The injury ruled out World Cup-winner Lloris of Spurs' last game against Watford which they lost 2-1, as well as France's national team fixtures during the global break. It will be interesting to see who Klopp picks in midfield, but there is a strong chance that Naby Keita will be back in the XI after he missed out last time, probably alongside James Milner and one other.
"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".
The former Manchester United and England defender, who is a pundit for Sky Sports, was essentially complimenting the job Klopp has overseen and stated that, without distractions, Liverpool have a squad capable of overhauling Manchester City.
"I fancy Liverpool based on the counter-attack game". "It's our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well I think we do".
"From my point it is all fine, but I know the situation isn't what some people expected but I can not change that".
He's a man. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.
"What I would say is Liverpool have solved the problems they had against Spurs a year ago, particularly at Wembley when Kane scored and Lovren made a couple of mistakes".
