Liverpool in 'discussions' with EFL over Carabao Cup quarter final date
Following those strong words from Jurgen Klopp last night about the Reds potentially withdrawing from the Carabao Cup if a suitable date wasn't found for their quarter final.
Liverpool were drawn against Aston Villa at Villa Park in their quarter final of the league cup, with a date yet to be agreed.
As Champions of Europe, Liverpool will be away at the World Club Champions Cup around the time that the quarter final would ordinarily be played. Meaning that the team could be facing a quarter final around the time we should be playing a semi-final first leg!
But Klopp was adamant that the club would have no qualms about dropping out of the cup if a suitable date wasn't found for the quarter final tie to be played.
So it is good news indeed to hear that the English Football League are in discussions with the club to find a suitable alternative.
