EPL: I almost called radio station to defend Man Utd – Klopp

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed he almost called a UK radio station to defend rivals Manchester United.

United have endured a poor start to the Premier League campaign and sit bottom of the table after defeats to Brighton and Brentford.

After the 4-0 loss at Brentford, former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor slammed United on talkSPORT and Klopp hit back at the pundit’s comments.

“It was not a nice week for United after Brentford. We forget how good Brentford are,” Klopp told a news conference on Friday. “I watched the first half and then drove home and listened on the radio to talkSPORT.

“Gabby Agbonlahor — he lost against us 6-0 in my first year and I couldn’t remember him as a mentality monster on the pitch but what he said about United on that show…I was close to calling in and telling him you forgot completely you have been a player.

“If ex players go already like this then you can imagine how everything else is going. You just have to ask yourself how you would want to react in a situation like this. They will want to fight back, that’s completely normal and it’s what we expect.”
