Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has advised Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp that grumbling about Premier League fixture chaos is a waste of time.
Coaches might seek employment in the "Maldives League" if they are unhappy with the timetable, Guardiola said.
On Wednesday, Liverpool faced Villarreal in the Champions League, and they will face Newcastle United in the early kick-off on Saturday.
The Premier League turned down Liverpool's request to reschedule the game at St James' Park to Saturday night. Klopp has termed the fast turnaround between games as "difficult."
Guardiola, on the other hand, believes that complaining is worthless.
“Nothing is going to change. It’s not going to change because the broadcasters are thinking about what they have to do to get more viewers. It’s not about what the players need or what the teams need, "Guardiola told a news conference on Friday.
Of course, I understand it, but what can I say? We are not going to solve the problem. "Sir Alex Ferguson was the most important icon in the history of English football and he was complaining when he was a teenager.”
City and Liverpool are separated by a point at the top of the table with five games remaining.
