Klopp talks Tierney, Jota injury & Timber price tag – Latest LFC News

As we build up to another big night at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp has spoken about his latest disagreement with referee Paul Tierney and revealed news of a potential setback for Diogo Jota.


Klopp clears up Tierney situation

In his pre-Fulham press conference, the manager was inevitably asked about his touchline spat with Tierney during the 4-3 win over Tottenham.

Klopp insisted that he “didn’t lie” in his post-match comments regarding his conversation with the official, but expressed regret at the manner in which the situation escalated.

“The whole situation shouldn’t have happened at all. That’s how it is,” Klopp told reporters.

“It was out of emotion, out of anger in that moment, not a very good leader for the things you do. That’s why I celebrated the way I celebrated.

“I know, obviously, the refs were really angry about what I said and go now for it. I heard I was lying and stuff like this.

“I did a lot of things that day, but I didn’t lie.”
