Jurgen Klopp forced to remove first-teamer from Europa League squad due to strict rules
Jurgen Klopp is determined to win the only major trophy that has eluded him by leading Liverpool to success in the Europa League.
However, Klopp faces a challenging task of selecting his squad for the tournament due to UEFA's strict rules. As per the governing body's regulations, Klopp can only include 17 overseas players in his Europa League squad, one fewer than in the Premier League.
This means that some of Liverpool's senior stars will not be available for the European competition. The Reds, who have reached three of the previous six Champions League finals, are considered favourites to win the Europa League.
They have been drawn in Group E alongside Austrian side LASK, Belgian hopefuls Union Saint-Gilloise and French outfit Toulouse. Despite high expectations, Klopp will have to make do without a full compliment of senior players, reports the Mirror.
