Liverpool fans rip into Robbie Savage on Twitter after bizarre Klopp claims

The pundit made a series of very strange claims about Liverpool's progress under the German.

In his Daily Mirror column on Friday night, Robbie Savage made a series of claims about Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp that fans felt were simply bizarre.

Many highlighted the embarrassing nature of his column and, frankly, they could not be more right.

Savage says Liverpool are going backwards under Klopp (who has only been at Anfield since October) and criticised him for having a similar win rate to Brendan Rodgers. So, with a Rodgers team - and usually half a Rodgers team due to so many injuries - Klopp has done the same as Rodgers, which means Klopp is a bad manager. Great logic.

The fact Liverpool have reached a final already under Klopp, something Rodgers couldn't manage in three seasons with the Reds, is clearly nothing to do with the German, either. In the eyes of Savage, of course.

In defence of the pundit, he is probably just looking for a reaction here - surely even Savage wouldn't genuinely believe this kind of thing.

Either way, here's how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to a very bizarre argument indeed...
