Jurgen Klopp unhappy with Roy Keane comment on Liverpool. Liverpool claim third successive victory at the start of the season.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has rejected Roy Keane’s suggestion his side had ‘sloppy’ moments in their defeat of Arsenal, insisting the champions only deserved praise for their 3-1 victory.
Asked to reveal by Sky Sports what he liked about Liverpool’s display as they defeated the Gunners, Klopp responded: “Everything! Did Mr Keane say we had a sloppy performance tonight?”
Keane clarified: “I think they gave up one or two opportunities, but they’d be disappointed with it.”
“Can you say that this was a sloppy performance tonight?” continued Klopp. “I’m not sure if I heard it right, but maybe he was speaking about another game as it can’t be this game. Sorry, that’s an incredible description of this game.
“This was absolutely exceptional. Nothing was sloppy, absolutely nothing. From the first second we were dominant against a team in form, 100 per cent in form, and you have to be careful for the counter-attacks.
“Alisson had to make one save, they had two balls in behind that we cannot avoid and you need a goalkeeper for that, but the football we played tonight was exceptional. For this game tonight, there’s nothing bad to say.”
Keane: “I said there were sloppy moments, but I said your team were outstanding. I’ve been giving the club nothing but praise so I’m not sure you’ve heard me correctly there.”
Klopp: “I heard the word ‘sloppy’, that’s all, so I imagined you must have watched the wrong game.”
Keane: “You need to watch the rest of it.”
Klopp: “I will watch it back, 100 per cent.”
After the interview concluded, Keane then remarked: “Very sensitive, isn’t he? Imagine if they’d lost!”
