Hypocrite! Jurgen Klopp angers Liverpool fans with BBC interview

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has angered fans.

The German gave an interview to BBC 5 Live Sport in which he spoke about the differences between the Reds and other clubs.

Liverpool owners FSG have come under fire for not putting their hand in their pocket and spending a bit more money this summer.

We’ve seen Chelsea sign Timo Werner from under the noses of the Reds, while theoretically Liverpool should have the power to buy someone like Kai Havertz.

Jurgen Klopp has defended FSG and made some interesting points during his interview as he spoke about the way in which the club have been run and who the owners are.

This has angered Liverpool fans, who have called him a hypocrite for saying Liverpool only spend what they earn despite splashing big fees on Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker.

Klopp’s squad clearly needs a few upgrades in order to get through 2020/2021. After Dejan Lovren’s departure, there’s a requirement for a fourth choice central defender.

Fabinho has been used there before, and could do so on an emergency basis, but Lovren played 10 Premier League games last season and 15 in all competitions. There’s no way you’d want Fabinho playing that many in central defence.

Another quality forward would also be welcome. Divock Origi has regressed and it seems like Liverpool are open to selling Rhian Brewster – something that would be a catastrophic error of judgement.

Despite this frustration, there’s no need for fans to be turning on the manager. It shows the horrible, toxic attitude of social media that supporters are turning against Klopp.

Asking taking Liverpool to two Champions League finals in a row and winning the Premier League, this man should be granted the benefit of the doubt. He’s not a puppet, he’s his own man and he’s brought incredible success to Merseyside.
