Chelsea owner Todd Boehly's call for an "All-Star game" in the Premier League similar to those played in the United States has been given short shrift by Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp.

American Boehly, head of a consortium that completed a £4.25 billion ($4.91 billion) takeover of Chelsea in May, suggested in a conference in New York that a 'north v south' game would create revenue that would filter down the English soccer pyramid.

Klopp, however, believes the idea is unworkable, citing an already crowded fixture list.
