Chelsea boss Boehly suggests all-star game in Premier League – Klopp skeptical

More income for the league

Whether it’s basketball, baseball or ice hockey: In the North American professional leagues, the “All-Star Game”, in which the best players from all clubs compete against each other in an East and a West team once a year, has long been an indispensable tradition . An adaptable model for European club football too? Definitely for the owner of Chelsea FC Todd Boehly, who is an American. The 48-year-old proposes a “North vs. South” match for the English Premier League – the focus would be on the lucrative revenue opportunities and associated financial support for the smaller clubs in the league. Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp doesn’t like the idea much.

According to Boehly, those clubs that do not generate regular additional income through participation in international business like the “Big Six” of the Premier League could benefit from the introduction of such a match. “People talk about it, ‘Why don’t we have more money for the pyramid?'” Boehly said (quoted via „Times“) before Chelsea FC’s Champions League group game on Wednesday evening against RB Salzburg (from 9 p.m. in the TM live ticker).

“Major League Baseball made its all-star game this year. They made $200 million on a Monday and a Tuesday. You could play a North vs South All Star game in the Premier League and fund the pyramid very easily. Everyone loves the idea of ​​more revenue for the league, but there’s a real cultural aspect to it as well. I think this development will come, “continued the Blues owner.

Chelsea’s Boehly: Hope ‘Premier League learns lesson from American sport’

In terms of sport, a corresponding separation could be made, for example, according to players from clubs from the North and the “Midlands” on the one hand and the seven London teams plus Bournemouth, Southampton and Brighton. Boehly also advocated the introduction of relegation playoffs in the English upper house: “Ultimately, I hope that the Premier League learns a little lesson from American sport and really starts to think about the question: ‘Why shouldn’t we have a tournament with the bottom four host teams?’”

A possible Premier League All-Star team from Northern England

The American’s advance from Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp met with little approval. The 55-year-old was irritated when asked about it after the Champions League win against Ajax Amsterdam on Tuesday evening: “Great, if he finds an appointment for it, he can call me,” countered the German and continued: “In American sports these players have four months off, so they’re pretty happy that they can do some exercise during their breaks. It’s completely different in football.”

Klopp on ‘All Star Game’ in England: ‘Not sure people want to see that’

In addition to the busy schedule in top European football, Klopp also referred to the pronounced rivalries between the clubs in northern England and made it clear that he considers Boehly’s idea to be absolutely unrealistic: “Does he also want to bring the Harlem Globetrotters and play them against a football team to let? Maybe he can explain that to me at some point and we can find a suitable date. I’m not sure if people want to see that. Imagine Manchester United players, Liverpool players, Manchester City players, Everton players, Newcastle players all playing together in one team. It’s not the national team. Did he really say it?
