(Video) Jim White blames Klopp for ‘toxic’ relationship between Liverpool and Man City

Posted by

Liverpool and Manchester City released a joint statement after incidents that have occured in previous meetings and now Jim White has attributed blame for these feelings to Jurgen Klopp and his behaviour on the sidelines.

Speaking on talkSPORT, the 65-year-old said: “That picture of Klopp right in the face of the linesman, fully motivated – yes but he shouldn’t have done it and that’s why he got a ban and it heightens it [the ill feeling between supporters]”.

Our manager was upset with a refereeing decision and admitted he was over the top with his reaction but to place blame on the Etihad Stadium’s supporters singing derogatorily about Hillsborough – is a joke.

There’s never an excuse for singing about people who have died in a tragedy, for defacing murals with references to those who have died or for vandalism.

You can watch White’s comments on Klopp (from 3:34) via talkSPORT on YouTube:

  1. Singing ‘its never your fault’ – although I can understand why your guilt might lead you to believe is a reference to Hillsborough – is not.

    Not as far as City fans are concerned anyway (I can’t speak for other fans).

    As far as we’re concerned it’s a reference to you vandalising our bus, coining our manager, your manager often defending the indefensible, and behaviour of your fans at Heysel & elsewhere.

    You may be able to defend every single one of these things, and that’s OK as far as I’m concerned, but THAT is why we accuse you of never being ready to take the blame for your actions (or, at the least, descending into ‘yeah-but-they-did-that-ism’.
