The Neville Brothers don’t like Liverpool – Klopp.
Jurgen Klopp insists he “doesn’t listen” to Phil and Gary Neville’s criticism of his players as they “don’t care much about Liverpool”.
Both brothers have been outspoken in their criticism of the Liverpool defense and their keepers’ performance in the net, while Jamie Carragher told keeper Loris Karis to “shut up and do your job” while he addressed the media in response to his criticism.
Klopp has now waded into the debate over Karius by saying he isn’t bothered about what the former Manchester United duo say about his players.
“My job is to protect the players as much as we can, but I can’t do that when they’re on the pitch,” said Klopp in a press conference on Monday.
“I’m not surprised about it. In my first press conference I spoke about English media, and the pundits, the former players, forgot completely how it felt when they get criticised.
“Especially the Neville brothers, the one who was a manager, he should know.
“He’s not interested in helping a Liverpool player.
“I don’t listen to them. Carra doesn’t speak too much about United players, and the Neville brothers don’t care much about Liverpool.
“Tell him I’m not on Twitter. If he wants me, Twitter doesn’t help.”
Ever since Klopp’s arrival, Liverpool have shown optimism and hopes for a much brighter future. Klopp’s all-out gung-ho attacking football is of the likes that the Premier League hasn’t really seen yet. That’s the reason why Klopp’s Reds have been a joy to watch every weekend.
The amount of passion Klopp shows towards the club is a major positive sign for the fans as it proves that he is here to stay and will bring the club back to its former glory. With performances like recent weeks, that is a possibility not too far in the future.
