Alan Shearer told Gary Lineker that Jurgen Klopp has ‘every right to be angry’ for his side’s recent performances, as he stated prior to Liverpool’s FA Cup defeat to Manchester United on BBC One.
Prior to Sunday’s encounter at Old Trafford, Lineker claimed that the Liverpool manager has been ‘a little bit spiky’ in recent weeks.
Liverpool lost their 68-game unbeaten home record to Burnley to add to their recent woes in the Premier League.
Well, whilst Liverpool have managed to find the back of the net once again, they suffered yet another defeat to send the champions of England into unfamiliar territory.
Gary Lineker first stated: “Jurgen Klopp has been a little bit spiky in recent weeks as you might expect. Not a great loser than show me a good loser and I will show you a loser.”
“I don’t see an issue with that at all,” said Shearer. “He has every right to be angry. His team aren’t scoring goals. His team aren’t performing well.
“What do people expect? He’s bound to have a go.”
Whilst a lot is made of what Klopp is like on the touchline or in his post-match interviews, it is pretty entertaining for the neutral.
From his fiery debate with Des Kelly on BT Sport about Liverpool’s scheduling to his heated exchange with Sean Dyche in the Anfield tunnel on Thursday.
It all makes interesting viewing and it’s that type of character that has helped lift Liverpool back to the top in terms of becoming European champions and English league champions again – and it’s that type of character they need to get out of their current rut.
