Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has blasted the media for further motivating Manchester United ahead of Sunday’s game at Old Trafford.
Knowing their terrible form at the moment, there has been a lot of mockery towards Man Utd ahead of the clash. Klopp was particularly displeased with articles that came up with a combined XI for both teams and included no Man Utd player.
According to Klopp, the media is simply trying to help the Red Devils by inspiring them against their bitter rivals.
His words, “In general, the mood that these things create? Yes, I would use it,”
“So that is the situation that everyone creates: that we are so good and they have so many problems, they cannot play football anymore, we are flying, all this stuff.
“I saw all these things and it looks like they want to help Man Utd. All these articles look like they have been written by Man Utd supporters. A banana skin, a joke.
“I saw the combined team. Would I have found it insulting if it were us? Yes.”
“They are all on their toes, ready, they wait for us. They said it already, they said that we are the perfect opponent now,”
“I don’t think there are a lot of teams who would love to play us at the moment.
“It looks like Man Utd are the only ones who want us. We have to make sure that is a misunderstanding.
“But it’s normal. I would do exactly the same if the situation was the other way round. This is the game that can change the world. That’s exactly how I would prepare it, so why shouldn’t Ole do that?”
