Jurgen Klopp has seen his Liverpool side questioned and subject to criticism from former Reds in the media on plenty of occasions this season but today got the opportunity to put a few of them to the test on the pitch.
Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Steve McManaman all featured in the club’s post-season friendly with Sydney FC in Australia having spent the past few months analysing their old team on television.
It was perhaps Carragher in particular who Klopp directed his rather hilarious reaction towards when discussing the involvement of ‘pundits’. The Anfield great, more than most, has picked apart a Liverpool defence that has been admittedly disappointing at times this season.
The facial expression alone hinted that part of the Reds boss could well have been hoping for a comical moment or error from a man who has been there to point out every comical moment or error that Liverpool have been guilty of.
It turns out Carra was as solid as ever, coming off at half time having kept a clean sheet in an eventual 3-0 win.
Klopp: We have involved a few “pundits”. ???
