Liverpool defender Lovren: I agree with Klopp - Nations League is stupid!

Croatia and Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren says he agrees with Jurgen Klopp's assessment of the Nations League competition.

The Reds manager slammed the new competition, which was introduced to limit the number of friendlies between international nations.

He said ahead of a meeting with England on Friday: "I agree with Klopp, the Nations League is a ridiculous competition.

"There is no sense in playing these games. It's not a real competition that you have to win.

"You can call these games whatever you want, but the fact is they are friendly games!"
