Watch: Jurgen Klopp Speaks More Sense On Brexit Than Most British Politicians

Maybe they can get Klopp to sort out the border issue? As the fallout continues from Britain's upcoming exit from the European Union, it seems a new issue is emerging everyday.

With the subjects of the Irish border and future trade agreements continuing to flummox British politicians, it may come as little surprise that random members of the public seem to speak with more decorum on Brexit.

The latest person to give his two cents on the narrative surrounding the issue was Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. While he could hardly be described as an expert on the subject, what he had to say certainly makes a lot more sense than the useless jargon and egotistical opinions that have been sprouted by many members of the House of Commons over the past two years.

Speaking to BBC's Dan Roan, he had this to say:

One argument I don't like too much is when they say 'why did we have the vote in the first place if we don't stick to it now?' I really don't understand that.

It's not because it is Brexit, but because of the information before Brexit. A lot of people may have forgotten it in the meantime, but the information before Brexit... on one side was really strong, a lot of the information was not true, but it was loud and very busy.

On the other side, all the people thought it would never happen and said nothing. That's not how you should prepare a democratic decision, because that is not democracy. Democracy gives all of the people the same information, and then make the decision.

With all these loud people, it was 51 per cent!

Jurgen Klopp teams subscribe to the mantra that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole, and that is something the German seems to carry into his political views.

It looks like the situation is not perfect, that it will not be perfect, the situation before was not perfect. Now you have to weight it up, what do you want?

Do you want to have a not perfect situation alone, or not a perfect situation as a strong partner in a very strong unit? It is common sense, because history has taught us that if you are alone, you are weaker than the unit...

The past has shown us that when all the strong partners are together, Europe is a much stronger place... yes we have problems, but let's sort them...

I just hope that people use common sense in the end, and don't just try and improve their own position.

If only certain politicians to subscribe to the German's opinion on the subject.
