klopp speaks to the press Liverpool manager was in a verbal altercation with Chelsea’s Frank Lampard in his team’s 5-3 win as they lifted the Premier League trophy. Klopp had dismissed earlier notions from the Blues boss that his team was arrogant, and he told his counterpart to learn not to talk about issues on the touchline.
“What I think also when you talk about arrogance is respect, and when you are in a role at a club or whether you are talking about how benches work- and I could speak to Jurgen Klopp all day and could fight the decisions or performance of a referee. what I feel was that a person, in particular, was absolutely crossing that line, so that became arrogant to me.”
Frank Lampard had said, “don’t get too arrogant F**k off.”
They Broke the Touchline Rule says, Lampard
He reacted angrily to Liverpool’s controversial free-kick after Mateo Kovacic tackled Sadio Mane, which was given as a foul that led to Alexander-Arnold scoring from the free-kick.
When Jurgen Klopp was asked of his take about the Blues boss comment.
“We are not arrogant. Frank was in a competitive mood, I respect that a lot. From my point of view, in this situation you can say pretty much what you want, he came here to win the game, or get a point with the Champions League qualification, and I respect that.”
The Reds boss further advised Frank Lampard,
“What Frank has to learn is to end it with the last whistle, and he didn’t do that. Speaking afterward about it, is not OK. He has to learn this, he has a lot of time to earn as he’s a young coach, but he has to learn this. Final whistle, close the book, and Frank didn’t do that, and that’s what I don’t like.”
He further said I wouldn’t have said anything about the issue if he had not been asked about his comments.
Some sections of the Chelsea loves the new side of Lampard on display as they feel it helps fire up the team build a cold-blooded fighting spirit.
Lampard might just be the new Mourinho going by his newfound strength.
