There was an incident that caught public attention in the Super Big Match duel between Chelsea and Liverpool last weekend. Precisely when coach Jurgen Klopp was angry towards the bench.
The Premier League duel for the 2020/21 season took place at Stamford Bridge, which is the headquarters of Chelsea. Liverpool itself won by a landslide score of 2-0, both goals were scored by the mainstay winger, Sadio Mane.
However, apart from the final result which was of course disappointing to the hosts Chelsea, there were indeed several incidents that were in the spotlight. These include Kepa blunders and Andreas Christensen red cards.
Now, when the Danish player received the red card, coach Jurgen Klopp looked angry at the player Bench. Many suspect the German coach scolded the players who sat on the bench.
However, Klopp tries to straighten this claim by saying that he scolded a member of the player’s staff.
“Not one of my substitutes, he is another member of staff. And I told him what I thought about it and fine, I have no problem with that. But at the time, yes, it was not what I wanted to do. I see, “he was quoted as saying from Metro.
In addition, Liverpool are also in the spotlight regarding their new signing, Thiago Alcantara. Yes, coach Jurgen Klopp gave him a chance to debut in the second half.
The Spanish midfielder did not just make his debut, but performed nicely by releasing 75 successful passes over 45 minutes. Klopp then paid tribute to the former Barcelona player.
“I really like his game. From a defensive point of view he seems to be struggling, but when he attacks, with the ball, that’s him, he wants to pass the ball,” he said.
Meanwhile, Thiago Alcantara himself joined Liverpool a few days ago. According to the news, the former Barcelona was redeemed for a fee of 25 million Euro from Bayern Munich.
Although it was not stated how much the contract duration was agreed upon, it is believed that the player has signed a four-year contract at Anfield.
