Liverpool used to travel around England by bus, but it looks like the German manager wants his players to be fully prepared to face Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday night.
Liverpool’s decision comes despite the fact that the club always takes into account the environmental concerns of the use of aircraft, as the club is considering running buses that use sustainable fuel, which results in a 90% reduction in carbon emissions compared to diesel.
An English newspaper reported the anger of many Liverpool fans over the decision, especially as the club is always committed to preserving the environment.
