Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has said he hopes that 'common sense' prevails over Brexit.
The football manager previously said that he was Brexit was far from a good thing because 'nobody has any idea how it will work'.
He said that it will have a 'massive impact on the young people and the cities.'
In an interview with the BBC, Klopp said that it felt like no-one appeared to have a clue how to resolve it, despite the constant noise about the UK's departure from the EU.
'With Brexit, it looks as though no-one is an expert. Everybody is talking about it but nobody has a solution.'

'I'm 51 years old so I have never experienced a war. We are really blessed in our generation, but the past showed us that as long as strong partners are together, Europe is a much safer place.
'We live in wonderful circumstances; yes, we have problems, but we sort them.

Klopp previously spoke out against the Leave campaign, and announced his support for a People's Vote.
'The two leaders of the leave campaign then stepped aside. It was a pure sign they were surprised themselves by the vote,' he told the Guardian.
'OK, that can happen. But then, come on, let's sit together again. Let's think about it again and let's vote again with the right information – not with the information you've got around the Brexit campaign.
'They were obviously not right, not all of them. It makes no sense at all.'
