Liverpool are planning to train for the next season and won’t allow their footballers to participate in the Olympic Games.
The English football club has rejected the Egyptian and French Football Federations and won’t allow Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah and French center-back Ibrahima Konate to participate in Tokyo 2020, thisisanfield.com reported.
Football clubs are entitled to prohibit their members from participating in the Olympic Games since the Olympic Games aren’t considered a FIFA championship.
Jurgen Klopp’s team will start training for the new season on July 12. The English football championship will kick off on August 14.
