‘Furious’ – Klopp called £100k-p/w Liverpool man to touchline to let rip over first-half v Wolves

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp was far from impressed with the manner in which Liverpool went about their business in the first 45 minutes of action at the Molineux.

Wolves, with only a single win from their prior four Premier League games, put themselves into the lead with Pedro Neto causing havoc at the back.

The German was spotted directing his ire at one member of the Reds’ defence, with Joel Matip (on a reported £100,000-a-week, according to Capology) called to the backline (as reported on X by Ian Doyle and Paul Gorst) for a ‘few choice words’.

It’s worth pointing out that a few changes have been made to the back four, with Joe Gomez surprisingly instructed to fulfil Trent Alexander-Arnold’s inverted fullback role, whilst our Cameroonian international has been tasked with partnering 20-year-old Academy graduate Jarell Quansah.

It’s a fixable situation as things currently stand at the time of writing, though it’s difficult to see how Klopp inspires a serious change without making a host of substitutions at the break.

The options are admittedly limited as far as the defence is concerned, though we could look to restore some control in the middle of the park by subbing in fresher legs, with both Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai appearing to feel the effects of their international commitments.
