Jurgen Klopp trolls Man United and Liverpool fans in the same interview after their victory over their arch rivals at the Anfield.
Liverpool romped to yet another victory as they scrapped past Manchester United with a 2-0 win. Liverpool took an early lead in the first half. However, United came back hard in the second half. Despite posing a huge threat to Liverpool’s run of clean sheets, the side were less than clinical in front of the goal. In the end, it was Liverpool who managed to find the back of the net once again.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Jurgen Klopped appeared to take a dig at Manchester United after the match suggesting that the visitors did not play football. He also appeared to make fun of his own fans in the same interview.

After Liverpool’s victory, the fans at Anfield began singing “We’re gonna win the league”. Klopp was asked of his opinion regarding the singing. The Liverpool manager hilariously answered:
“They can sing that; they have sung that a couple of times in the past, I think.”
“l have no problem with that. Everyone should celebrate the situation, apart from us. Nothing has changed, we have the same situation plus three points. I will tell you immediately the moment if it feels different, at the moment it doesn’t.”
While his comment on Liverpool fans does not seem to be intentional, the one about United was definitely meant to be a dig.
“What a performance against an opponent with the quality of United, and the setup of United” Jurgen Klopp said.
“Ole will say the same, they wanted to annoy us, distract our game, defend and counter attack. They had moments when they played football but not too often, the other moments it was difficult to create chances, but the manner we created chances was exceptional.”
Liverpool are now 30 points clear off of Manchester United in the league and could very possibly become the first side since Arsenal to go through the entire English top-flight without losing a single match. They are also contenders to become the first English side since Manchester United to complete the European treble.
