Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has slammed a reporter for Premier League faults.
Jurgen Klopp wasn’t in the highest of spirits when he was questioned by BT Sport reporter Des Kelly after the Brighton draw. The Brighton draw wasn’t the best of Liverpool matches, with Salah frustratedly walking off the field.
He told BT Sport : “We are used to armpits. We have a toe today. It is how it is. I think the decisions were right.”
Pressed on whether the correct decision was made, about Jordan Henderson being denied a penalty, Klopp fired back: “You try to create a headline.
“The ref whistled it. You try always, all the time. Today I say it wasn’t a penalty. What do you want me to say? I said it was a penalty because the ref whistled it, after watching it.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the boys for how they played today. We struggled a bit in the first half an hour with the new last line, because we didn’t drop in the right time. We sorted that but in the second half we had some problems with energy.
“In the situations around the goals, we were brilliant. Mo’s goal was a brilliant goal. Sadio’s header was outstanding. All good, it’s just tough times. That’s how it is.
“You always need a bit of luck to win a tough away game, but today we didn’t have luck. I thought the front three played really well together.”
Kelly also asked about James Milner’s injury, confirming if it was a hamstring injury, to which the Reds boss hit back sarcastically: “Yeah, congratulations.”
Kelly then probed further, asking if that answer was meant for him, and Klopp replied: “No, but you work for them, yeah? Hamstring. Surprise. And they had injuries as well because it’s a tough time. But ask Chris Wilder how we avoid that.”
Definitely would want to avoid Klopp for a while, it looks like.
