Neil Warnock has ridiculously joked that he and Jürgen Klopp should swap managerial responsibilities for a week after he was defeated by the Reds on Sunday.
The Cardiff boss is always one for a smart remark, telling BBC Sport that “I think Jurgen should do a job swap with me for a week.
“They are doing that well, he should let me have his team for a week and he should come and have mine.
“The players really gave their best. When you are coming up against such quality like that it’s great to give them a game and give the fans one or two exciting moments.”
Warnock “I think Jurgen should do a job swap with me. He can see how it works”

The heady heights of the top of the table and a Champions League semi-final against Barcelona or a relegation battle and mired in the drop zone? I think Jürgen’s alright where he is, thanks!
The Yorkshireman seems to be taking a dig at Klopp here suggesting that he doesn’t understand what it is to be the underdog.
Well, Jürgen eventually managed Mainz to Bundesliga promotion after two failed attempts and kept them up with two 11th placed finishes despite having the smallest budget and stadium in the league.
When he took over at Borussia Dortmund they had finished the previous campaign in 13th place.
Any context behind Neil Warnock’s claim that him and Klopp should swap jobs? Nope, none at at all. What a bitter old turnip. Also conveniently ignored the fact that Klopp did the same job with Mainz. Except he did it better and got the spotlight Neil craves.

On Sunday, Cardiff were admirably resolute and kept the game goaless until after the break, but we were imperious and never looked like relinquishing control of the game.
Warnock was unhappy with a lot of the refereeing decisions on Sunday, claiming of Mo Salah’s awarded penalty, “I think the end of it was a 9.9 Tom Daley job.
“I don’t think he could have got much higher off the diving board at the end of it. I am sure you will be saying Warnock’s a moaning so and so again.”
Sorry, we will be saying that Neil; Sean Morrison was all over him and it was a stonewall penalty.
