Sunday Oliseh, a former Super Eagles coach, has slammed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following his comments following the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday.
Klopp stood by as Liverpool drew 2-2 with Tottenham at Anfield, thanks to goals from Heung-Min Son and Luis Diaz.
But, speaking after the game, Klopp slammed Tottenham’s style of play, saying, “I don’t like this kind of football.”
“I’m sorry; I am the wrong person to ask about [Tottenham’s defending] because I don’t like this kind of football. But that is my personal problem. I think they’re world-class and I think they should do more for the game.”
However, his statements drew harsh criticism from Oliseh, who said that despite having a team full of talented players, the German failed to find a way to win against Spurs.
“Disappointing, with all respect to Klopp,” Oliseh tweeted on Sunday.
“There are different ways of playing football; one should always respect the opponent’s style. Up to him to find the key to win with the hugely gifted players in his possession. Football will be boring if we all played the same way.”
