A vacation more important than a game against possible CL winners!
That's the view of the AZ Alkmaar's board members since they refused the offer of Liverpool to have a friendly game in Spain in what should have been, a final test for Liverpool before the Champions League finals.
There are fifteen more days for Liverpool before their game against Tottenham, so the club is looking a rival that could keep their players in-form since the Premier League got finished the previous weekend.
They chose AZ Alkmaar, and have invited the Dutch club, however, the answer was pretty much cold blooded - no, thanks.
The reason is, the club's players are on vacation during that period and the club won't be able to field anywhere close to the quality team that Liverpool asks for.
Not sure whether many of the clubs worldwide would reject such invitation, while the Reds are now forced to look for other options with no time going in their favor.
