‘I can’t’ – Klopp doesn’t hold back in scathing review of ‘world class’ Tottenham; compares Conte’s men to La Liga outfit

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp compared Antonio Conte’s Tottenham outfit to Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid in an honest assessment of Liverpool’s opponents, as relayed in a series of tweets from David Lynch.

Spurs secured a potentially valuable point in their bid to secure a top four place, albeit potentially at the cost of the hosts’ quadruple hopes.

The result does see the Merseysiders leapfrog Manchester City in the league standings, with the Cityzens now possessing a game in hand to reverse the swapping of positions tomorrow against Newcastle United.

The incumbent champions’ ruthless approach to domestic affairs will no doubt inspire confidence amongst many a fanbase of them quickly restoring their lead at the English top-flight summit.

That being said, Eddie Howe’s men may yet have one vital part to play in one of the most closely fought title runs in the history of the competition judging by the hoops they made us jump through at St. James’ Park to secure all three points.

The home advantage does, of course, lie with the Manchester-based outfit, though we shouldn’t be quick to discount what the Magpies could deliver on the day to continue their remarkable change of fortunes in English football.

More Stories Jürgen Klopp


  1. Klopp showed no class after the game. What on earth was he talking about? Is he seriously suggesting that Tottenham players shouldn’t block shots? (One of the attempted blocks gifted Liverpool their fortunate equaliser.) He seems to think that 36% possession demonstrates something. But what? It demonstrates that the home team had more possession and the away team defended well. I know he was hurting because Tottenham have almost certainly stopped them winning the title but behave professionally not like a child. He also pointed out that Tottenham beat Man City – twice for FFS – the second of these allowing Liverpool back into the title race. Grow up. Stop sulking. Be gracious.

  2. Klopp must play his and style and stop trying to find fault with systems which is attacking football fails to breakdown. It works for Conte and Simione and does not work for you and Pep, so let the one that’s superior win games. Stop being critical of other managers style of playing and do you. They coach according to resources at thier disposal, do the same.
