Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson disagrees with manager Jurgen Klopp when it comes to the UEFA Nations League.
The German's blunt assessment of the new tournament was: “It is the most senseless competition in the world.”
But England star Henderson does not share his club boss' thoughts on the new format.
“As a player you want to win every game, even if it’s a friendly and, for us, the Nations League is important," he said.
“That’s because it has an affect on the groups and the seedings at the Euros I think in two years.
“And it’s important for us to play and try to win against big nations like Spain.
“It’s important we go to the next level. It’s a good challenge and an important challenge for us to prove we can do that.
“As a team, after reaching the semi-finals at the World Cup, we feel we have to go to the next level and compete against Spain, France, Croatia and teams like that. We want to win those games.
